TV Disposal: What You Need to Know
Throwing It Away Is Bad for the Environment
Municipal trash collectors do not accept electronics because of the ecological dangers it poses. Electronics leak toxic chemicals into the ground, which can pollute our water sources. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop most people because the alternatives are time-consuming and can cost money. Plus, electronics cannot be picked up by recycling companies because they are more difficult to recycle. This leaves very few options for those interested in responsibly disposing of their old electronics.
You Have Other Options
Sell It. The same could go for an old electronic. If it’s not in optimal working condition, you might even find someone who wants it for the parts. There are many Facebook groups dedicated to selling in different locations.
Bring It to a Recycle Center. A simple Google search can help you locate a recycling facility near you. Sites like Earth911.com, for example, let you search by the item you want to recycle and your ZIP code. You can then take it there yourself to have it recycled for a small fee.
Wait for a Community E-Recycle Day. Many communities designate days for organized eWaste drop-offs. Unfortunately, it tends to be infrequent, maybe a couple of times a year. This means old electronics are left to pile up in storage between events. Although these services tend to be free, there are fees for certain items, like big tube TVs and computer monitors.
Have It Hauled. This is one of the easiest ways to get rid of that old television. Junk hauling companies like JDog Junk Removal & Hauling are here to help you recycle or donate your old, or unwanted, electronics.
