What You Need to Know About Your Options
Your TV has served you well. It’s been the focal point of gameday, the most important part of movie night, and overall centerpiece of the living room. After so many years of service, is it finally time to replace your old television? Before you put it out on the curb, here’s what you need to know about TV disposal.
TV Disposal: What You Need to Know About Your Options
- Sell it. Like many old electronics, you can make money off of your old TV. Put it up for sale on your local yardsale site like Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or Nextdoor. Even if it’s not the latest technology, you might find someone who doesn’t mind an older TV or there could be someone looking for TV parts.
- Take it to a recycling center. If your old TV isn’t in workable condition or you aren’t interested in selling it, you can take it to a recycling center that specializes in electronics. You can use sites like Earth911.com to find a location by searching by the item you want to recycle and your zip code. You can then take it to that center and have it recycled (likely for a small fee).
- See if your community has an e-recycle day. Some communities have periodic events for recycling electronics to keep the toxic chemicals out of landfills. If you have storage space in your home, consider holding onto your TV until this possibly free community event.
- Hire a company to haul it. Junk hauling companies like JDog Junk Removal & Hauling are here to help you recycle or donate your old, or unwanted, electronics.
