When it comes to junk removal, not everything can be thrown into your dumpster and forgotten about. There are certain items that need to be handled with more care due to toxicity in the materials. Any electronics need to be disposed of with care and proper protocol, and a TV is one of the largest such items. If you have a television that you’re looking to dispose of, but you’re unsure of how to go about doing so, take a look at our blog to learn how to safely and responsibly get rid of your old TV!
Don’t Throw It In The Trash
The first thing we want to mention is that you should not under any circumstances throw your TV away. The reason you should dispose of TV’s, or any electronics for that matter, is that when you throw them away, they can leak toxic chemicals into the ground and pollute water sources. Of course, this doesn’t stop many consumers from throwing them away out of sheer laziness, but if you want to be a responsible consumer, there are far better ways to dispose of your unwanted electronics. Let’s discuss a few of the alternatives below.
With a bit of research, you can find a local recycling plant that will process old electronics. You may have to pay a small fee to have the electronics recycled, but it is far safer & more responsible than allowing the toxins from your electronics to leech into the earth.
Wait for A Community Recycle Day
Another option is to wait and see if your community has a designated recycling day. This allows you to safely recycle your electronics conveniently, and potentially for free! The only disadvantage to this option is that you’re left waiting around until the day comes to dispose of your TV. However, there is one more option for those looking to get rid of the TV quickly!
Lastly, if you’re motivated to get rid of your TV quickly, you can always look into selling it for parts. If it’s still in working condition, it’s possible you can sell the complete unit, but if not, there are electronic stores that will likely take the old TV for parts. This will ensure that it isn’t thrown away and is put, at least partially, to good use.
