TV Disposal: What To Do With Your Old TV Set

TV Disposal

Whether it’s a spring cleanout project , or a plan to upgrade your appliances, in either case you’ll have to deal with some amount of junk. This may even include bidding farewell to your time-worn furniture, and overused appliances.

Especially, in this era where a vast majority of Americans are shifting to sleek, flat LED TV screens, dealing with television disposal has become a challenge. According to a report revealed by Statista, the total number of US households with a television set reached over 119.6 million between the years 2017 and 2018. Furthermore, over 22 million smart TV sets were imported in the last quarter of 2017.

These figures mean that there are countless old televisions that are either being recycled, resold, or tossed into the landfills.

Earth911.com claims that electronic waste has always remained a challenge for the government and other concerned authorities;

“Televisions, old VCRs, DVD players, stereos, copiers, fax machines, tablets, computers, and plenty more electronic devices all become e-waste as soon as they are not wanted anymore.E-waste isn’t always easy and convenient to recycle. Local governments often have e-waste collection days a few times a year, but that means that homeowners have to store the unwanted items in the meantime.”

If you want to upgrade to a newer version of flat screen television and you can’t decide what to do with the old one, read this blog! Here, we have covered some ways to help you make the most of your old television.

Donate It to Someone in Need

The TV that you no longer use can make a difference in another household that cannot afford to buy one. Here’s what you can do to donate your TV to the right family:

  • Examine your old TV set for any defects and malfunctioning. If it doesn’t work fine, drop the plan of donating it.
  • Ask your friends, family members, and colleagues to spread the word. Also, it’ll be helpful to look around in your neighborhood for someone who might be in need of a TV set.
  • You may also donate it to a non-profit organization. They are usually in contact with needy families, and they can get it to the right people. Shelter homes, nursing homes, old age homes, and community centers may utilize your television in their own facility for the purpose of entertainment.

Consider Putting It on Sale

There are several online platforms that allow you to sell old and used appliances at good prices. You can start with advertising your TV online with pictures on these platforms. Make sure you check the bids on multiple websites to get the best value for your old TV set. Moreover, most buyers arrange their own pick-up, making it more convenient for you.

Choose Sustainability

If your TV doesn’t work at all and you can’t donate or resell it, the only viable option in that case is to recycle it or dump it. In some areas there are specific organizations that deal with the recycling of E-waste. It’s ideal to get help from a junk removal service that deals with E-waste. They’ll pick your old TV from your house at a time you’re comfortable with and drop it off with the appropriate facility in your area.
