What Should I Do With This Old TV?

01-05-2017

If you've found yourself trying to declutter one of those old large TVs, then you know how much work it can involve.  Here are tips on where to take them ... and in some cases how much it will cost you. 

What do I do with this old TV

These big mammoths of entertainment are now a burden to get rid of.  You know what I’m talking about.  Those huge TVs from the ‘80s and ‘90s that took 4 men to lift and move. 

The ones with the big backs.  The ones that simply.won’t.die.  Seriously, they are the best quality thing in your house.  That you don't want anymore.  

So now we've moved on to razor-thin, light-as-a-feather TVs that you could lift with a finger.  So what are we supposed to do with those mammoth beasts? 

One might think: Donate. 

Surprise!  No one wants those things.  Goodwill, Salvation Army, Kidney Foundation.  All of them will tell you “thanks but no thanks”. 

Alright, how about: Trash. 

Think again! You cannot throw away electronics as they must be recycled.  

Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner. 

Except! It isn’t as easy as you think to recycle those mammoth beasts. #1 you have to remove it from your house. #2 some counties charge you (!!) to recycle them. 

If you live in Mecklenburg County, then you can recycle your old TVs at any of their recycling centers at no additional cost

If you live in Gaston County, then you can recycle as well at a charge of $4/TV
