How do I...

I want to get rid of a tv. Flat screen, not smart, not too large (28 inches across), perfectly functional.

I would like to advertise it on my town listserv. I could ask for some $$, but I have no idea how much. Or just offer it free...

It has a Roku, too.

What would you ask for it, if anything?

I got rid of a working TV by posting a pic on NextDoor and offering it for free. I was thrilled it went to a good home right away. Done, yay.

Technology has improved so quickly in TVs that you may not get much for it. I had one last month - I asked around and found someone who needed a TV, and gifted it.

Thatís kind of what I thought...free or best reasonable offer.

I will post it on the listserv and see if I get any interest.

Check your local online markets and see what folks are asking for TVs similar to yours. We've found that electronics bring very little in today's market. We actually had to PAY to have our city take our TV and dispose of it since we can't just toss it in the dumpster.

You can get that size smart TVs for less than $100 these days

Iíd offer it free, someone might like it for a childís room or game play.

It costs us $45 to dispose of a TV at our city trash/recycle center. I offered it for free on craigslist and thankfully someone took it. I often see TVs dumped in the woods because people don't want to pay the fee.

I got a new tv and took the old one to my parish social ministry. They gave it to someone in the parish who didnít have one.
