Television recycling was never easy until now. Here you'll run with our three simple steps to get that old TV where it belongs... Recycled into commodities to be manufactured into new products.
A TV recycling solution, even for moms
It seems like only yesterday, I was 17 moving into my first apartment. Almost immediately my roommate Jeff and I headed to Circuit City (now defunct) to buy my first top-of-the-line, 27", Panasonic, super flat screen TV.
I remember waiting in the parking lot outside their warehouse as their workers brought it out the door for us to put it in the back of I forget whose truck. The ride home was so gratifying. But, then carrying that thing up the stairs to our second floor apartment. Aye yai yai!
Hooking it up was a breeze, and what a picture. Speaking of which, it had picture in picture which I really made use of the first few years. No need for that anymore with the cable menu choices we have now, but back then it was cool.
That thing stuck with me for at least eight years before I handed it down to my mother. I soon forgot about it after installing my giant 52" LCD in my entertainment center. But sooner or later my mom's TV will stop working.
Then what is a mother of 62 to do with something like that? Granted she has me and the electronics recycling business I'm in. But, what would your mother do? The answer to these questions were all part of why I've structured our operation the way I have.
Here's a video of why you must TV recycle
And now those three simple steps:
Television recycling step one
Your old TV set will be dismantled before recycling in order to separate the glass and lead ray tube from the recycling stream. The remainder then gets shred into tiny pieces which then get separated by machines into plastic, ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
If the television is covered with dust that has a way of contaminating the end commodities. So I ask you to just give it a once over and dust it off. It's appreciated.
Television recycling step two
In order to pick-up your old electronics for recycling, at a time that's amicably convenient, it's best to get some friend or family helpers and put that old TV out on the porch or on the side yard for us to get to.
There's always an exception if you need it though.
