TV REMOVAL TV DISPOSAL TV RECYCLING ALBUQUERQUE NM: Can Televisions Be Recycled?
Yes, they can! 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. Plus, TV recycling can produce valuable materials that can easily be reused, including plastic, glass, copper wiring, and even precious metals. Instead of dealing with the hassle of lugging your old television to the dump only for it to be disposed of improperly, let the professionals take it off your hands.
HOW TO DISPOSE OF A PROJECTION TELEVISION
The switch to digital broadcast signals and Blu-ray technology may have combined to make your old projection TV obsolete. However, simply dumping your projection TV in an alley or trash dumpster is not an environmentally responsible act. Before taking this approach, ask family or friends if they may want to take the old projection set off your hands. Proper disposal of your projection TV will help keep the Earth free of access waste and clutter.
The other reason getting rid of a TV is difficult is because they are considered e-waste, or electronic waste items. Television sets contain harmful chemicals that will pollute our local environment if they are thrown into a landfill or any other improper disposal location. That's why TV disposal needs to be taken seriously
DISPOSING OF A PROJECTION TV
Donate your old projection television to charitable organizations like the Salvation Army or Goodwill that could benefit from your donation. In fact, your projection TV may be picked up at your doorstep, depending on your location and the organization you're donating to.
Locate a junk removal and recycling company that accepts projection TV sets. In some instances, companies like Gazelle.com will pay for your projection TV as opposed to recycling it. You may be required to bring your projection TV to the recycling company's facility, or they may send you a box to ship your TV in. Most recycling companies will handle the cost to have your TV shipped to their designated recycling facility
Join an organization like Freecycle. It's a nonprofit organization that allows members to give and receive electronics, and other items of use. Send an email offering your TV to other members of the Freecycle network. If you wish, you may specify that your projection TV go to a nonprofit organization instead of an individual. Otherwise, select the member whom you want to receive your TV . Schedule a pick up day and time. If there isn't any way to schedule a pick up, you and the receiver may need to work out shipping arrangements.
