· Only televisions/monitors up to 49 inches will be accepted;
· There is a limit or two items per day (two televisions or two monitors; or one of each);
· Best Buy branded televisions and monitors (Dynex or Insignia) will be accepted at no charge;
· Televisions and monitors of other brands will be accepted, but the resident will be charged $29.99 per television or monitor. Residents paying the collection fee will be issued a $30 Best Buy Gift Card. Please note, this collection fee model is acceptable in accordance with Section 504 of the Covered Device Recycling Act (CDRA).
