i have three, maybe four tvs. tube style
one sony hd.30 inch iirc. it works with remote and book but gets picky if left on in heat for a while.
the other jvc 25 inch it works but its not hd. old tube tv. and another two small tvs.

Best Buy will take them for free. So don't just toss them

Also a 308 recycles them nicely, just pick up the pieces.

Call local best buy and check. I think they charge now and limit the size.

Dan, B-Buy used to take them N/C, but last time I tried at SW Littletown location it involved a fee, call your local Best Buy before you go

Just don't get any crazy ideas and throw it into one of our reservoirs, trying to create more "structure" for the fish. I noticed an old TV sitting just feet from the water on the north side of Green Mountain last summer. Looks like someone had tried to toss it down the embankment from the east bound lane on Highway 9.

thanks. i don't litter.
the only thing i chuck in water is day boaters who kill pike.
tbh i'm not sure c springs has any best buys anymore. i was hoping someone here took the innards out etc. so I could help a member with the parts.

Glad I got rid of all my old ones before they stopped taking them

No one wants the tube-types anymore. Even Goodwill, ARC, etc turn you away. Staples takes some electronics free (printers, old computers, etc),but IDK about TV's.
Recycle thru your waste company - most have a free pickup once a year or so.

Goodwill took an old computer and monitor I had.
