Many retailers and manufacturers have programs set up to help dispose of old TVs and other large electronic devices. Once accepted, these old devices will then be donated or recycled. In addition, there are many "e-waste" recycling centers around the country that will accept old TVs.
Recycling helps to save energy and allows much of the metals, glass and plastic in old TVs and devices to be used again. Also, this process helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as fewer new materials need to be manufactured and mined. In addition, recycling these items helps to reduce water and air pollution, and allows natural resources to be conserved. Services like R2 Stewardship Responsible Recycling Solutions accept recycled televisions.
