Best Buy Joins EPA Appliance Program
Best Buy announced Tuesday that it has teamed with the EPA's Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) program, a move aimed towards towards promoting "environmentally responsible disposal" of appliances.
"Best Buy has helped consumers responsibly recycle old appliances and electronics for many years," Leo Raudys, senior director, environmental affairs for Best Buy, said as part of the announcement. "Our decision to partner with the EPA RAD Program is just one more way we can demonstrate our commitment to help consumers make more responsible choices with technology and appliances."
"By joining EPA's RAD Program Best Buy is ensuring that the refrigerant-containing appliances they collect will be disposed of using the best environmental practices available, which will help protect the ozone layer and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases," Drusilla Hufford, Director for EPA's Stratospheric Protection Division, said in a statement. "We are pleased to welcome Best Buy as a RAD partner."
