TV Disposal ChallengesSo, why exactly is TV disposal such a hard thing to do? After all, it’s not like it’s a hazardous material. But, that’s precisely what it is, at least in-part. Practically all televisions contain certain components such as lead, mercury, cadmium, leaded glass, copper, flame retardants, beryllium, and bisphenol-A.
Electronic products are made from valuable resources and materials, including metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Donating or recycling consumer electronics conserves our natural resources and avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by manufacturing virgin materials. —US Environmental Protection AgencyBecause of this, it’s full of hazardous materials and that means it’s off limits to the local trash collection agency. Which means if you drag it out to the curb, that’s where it will stay. It’s a sad reality but one that some people must deal with when faced with this particular situation.
Sarasota Old TV Disposal OptionsIf all that is true, how do you do used TV disposal in Sarasota? Well, if it’s still in working condition, there are a few options. Here’s some helpful suggestions for old TV disposal you can try out:
- Sell it. Host a garage, yard, or block sale and price it really, really cheap. You might just find a buyer who can’t resist. Or, you might opt to pair it with something else and basically give it away.
- Repair it. Okay, this isn’t probably at the top of your list (or even a consideration). But, repairing it might actually be a way to go. However, the cost of repair might well be too much to justify financially. Repair it and put it in a guestroom or somewhere else.
- Give it away. You can also give that TV to a local charity or school. If it’s in working condition, there are plenty of places which will accept this electronic as a gift. After all, it’s worthwhile to give it a try.
- Junk it outright. Should none of the above options be a good fit, then just opt to junk it. You can simply call a junk removal service to cart it away, along with anything else you don’t need.
