Retail stores have recycling drop-off program and the Trade-in Program, which is also online. Best Buy has an extensive Trade-In program that accepts a wide variety of devices — including cell phones, tablets, e-readers and smartwatches — plus cameras, video games, TVs and more. To trade in your item, share details online about its specs and conditions and you'll automatically receive a trade-in offer. Take your trade-in item to a Best Buy store or mail in your item to receive an e-gift card for the value of your trade-in. Limit of three items per day per household.
