Discarding an OLD television

My son is getting rid of a very old box style television. Does anyone know how we can get rid of this? Goodwill stores no longer accept them. It's not a big floor style one.

My County/Township has a bi-yearly Electronics recycle pick-up so any plug ins including TVs would be taken to the recycling location and deposited there.

Check in your area for an electronics recycling center. It will probably cost a little money to dispose of it.

Our local trash pick-up took ours when we put it out by the trash can. I'm not sure we have any other way to dispose around here.

Your trash hauler may pickup, but Id check first. Otherwise, maybe an electronics recycler?

I have to take that sort of thing to the recycling center. For box style TV it's $15-$25 depending on the size of the TV.

Sometimes businesses or organizations will sponsor a recycling drive and then you can get ride of that type of stuff for free.

In my area we have to pay $25 or more to get rid of an old TV. The various components, etc. are expensive to deal with.

Big box store or electronics recycling.

We recently got rid of an old box-style TV.

Best Buy (where we bought our new TV) would have hauled it away for a fee but it was early in the pandemic and they had temporarily halted the program.

I ended up calling the company that collects our trash. I was able to schedule a pick-up with them for free.

This was a few years ago, but I brought mine to Best Buy. I can't quite tell, though, if you would need it to be picked up. Mine was small enough (but quite heavy) to carry.

Recycling center -we actually were paid a couple of dollars for a tv and a bunch of other electronics and scrap.

Oops! My DH explained we only got paid for the metal scrap and not the electronics. They took it for free but we got nothing for the donation.

Our DPW has electronics recycling days. You might want to check with your DPW.
