Earth Day Roundup: Recycling Record, and Best Buy and Apple News
Tuesday is the annual Earth Day. A look around the world of CE and green recycling:
- The Consumer Electronics Association said Monday that the CE industry recycled 620 million pounds of electronics in 2013, for a new record. The amount, according to CEA, is more than double the total from three years ago.
- Of those pounds, 96 million were recycled by Best Buy, which it calls an "unofficial world record." Best Buy will present a gift card of a minimum of $20 in exchange for any working gadget through April 26.
