Recycling old TVs in an environmentally friendly manner
Old TV sets can be recycled but the process often may involve some legwork and careful consideration. Although it's not a simple task to recycle, it is often easier and worth the trouble as compared to other alternatives.
Like many other electronic devices, TVs contain a variety of materials such as heavy metals, plastic, and other toxins like lead that can pose a serious pollution risk if not dealt with properly.
Recycling of TVs and other e-waste is required by law in 25 U.S. states, and in some states, TVs are banned from landfills entirely. Even if you face no legal consequences for tossing a TV into the trash, there are also practical and ethical reasons as to why recycling is a better option.
We take excessive caution so that we protect Earth’s climate and ozone layer during the process of disposing of your old LEDs and CRTs. You don’t have to carry, unplug, pack, clean up or do any heavy-lifting or physical work. We do it for you at your convenience. All you have to do is point and your old TV disappears.
TV Recycling FAQs
How do you dispose of an old or broken TV?

- Take it to a recycling facility. Depending on where you live, they may offer a pickup service.
- Return it to the manufacturer. Some companies offer to take old TVs back and recycle or refurbish them. Contact the manufacturer to see if your TV is eligible for this service.
- Sell it. If your TV still works and isn’t too old, you may be able to sell it to someone else.

Can I throw a TV in the trash?
No, you should never throw an old TV in the trash. In fact, many garbage pickup services don’t pick up televisions, so it might not even be an option. Most old TVs also contain harmful chemicals and parts that need to be safely disposed of.
Can you recycle a television?
Yes, there are many components of a TV (inside and out) that can be recycled. To recycle your TV, you need to take it to a facility that is equipped to properly take the TV apart so that all the individual parts can be recycled.
Why is it important to recycle a TV?
TV recycling can also produce valuable materials that can easily be reused, including plastic, glass, copper wiring, and even precious metals. They can be used to create new products and can also help reduce the amount of resources needed for the production of new metals, glass, and plastic.
Like many other electronics, TVs contain chemicals that, if disposed of improperly, can damage our health and the environment. Responsible TV disposal, such as professional recycling, is important to prevent these chemicals from unnecessarily polluting the air and water.
How can I recycle my old TV?
