How to Get Rid of Your Old TV

What You Can Do

Television Removal: Your Options

Whether that old TV is collecting dust in storage or you’re ready to upgrade, one thing is for certain: it’s not easy to get rid of your old television responsibly! Electronics like TVs leak toxic chemicals into the ground, which can pollute our water sources when thrown away with the rest of your trash. Unfortunately, alternatives are time-consuming and can cost money, and 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.

How to Get Rid of Your Old TV

  • Sell It. The same could go for any old electronics. If your TV is 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, so check out your local group.
  • Bring It to a Recycle Center. Sites like, for example, let you search by the item you want to recycle and your ZIP code. You can take your TV 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 might be fees for certain items like big tube TVs and computer monitors.
  • Hire Someone to Haul It. 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.
