Appliance Pickup. Best Buy will remove up to two appliances from your home for recycling. Fee for standard pickup service of two Appliances is $100. Each additional appliance will be removed at a cost of $20. Visit your nearest Best Buy store to schedule your pickup time. Payment for pickup service must be completed in-store. Best Buy will remove old appliances from consumer’s homes. The units are collected from Best Buy by our licensed, third-party recycling partners. The recyclers examine and evaluate the used appliances for repair and/or reuse*. They salvage reusable and/or repairable parts from the units. They safely remove CFCs and any other universal waste for separate recycling. Using various technologies our recyclers employ the separating out of the various commodities (Metals, Plastics, Glass, etc.). Those commodities are then sent to end markets to be recycled and re-purposed into new products.

* The extent to which the parts of any appliance are capable of being reused or recycled will depend on the nature of the unit.
