LG, Best Buy and the NCAA will host a free electronics recycling event at the Superdome.
LG Electronics USA, as an official corporate partner of the NCAA, is running the special promotion with Best Buy to give consumers a chance to get rid of old TVs, computers and other electronic equipment.
The event is being staged as a pregame warm-up to Final Four week in New Orleans. LG is teaming with Best Buy on a special "Do March Right" promotion exclusively for consumers who participate in the e-cycling event on Sunday.
New Orleans-area residents are encouraged to drop off and recycle any brand of electronics products or computers between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday, March 25, in Parking Lot 4 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where the 2012 NCAA Men's Final Four semifinal and national championship men's basketball games will be played.
Each car that drops off old electronics for free recycling will receive a coupon for $50 to $150 in instant savings on more than a dozen Energy Star qualified LG flat-panel TVs. The coupons can be redeemed between March 25 and April 7 at local Best Buy locations for instant savings on selected models of LG 42-, 47-, 50- and 55-inch plasma, LCD and LED HDTVs.
