Hi all,
Our living room TV kicked the bucket today...
SO, where do we get rid of it?? I looked at the Union County landfill website and I didn't see TVs listed there anywhere.....so what do I do?
Thanks!

Goodwill? Don't they refurbish stuff? Or sell parts? Something, LOL?

Try the Fox Hole on Hwy 521. It says they take computer monitors...

Foxhole Recycling Center (http://www.charmeck.org/Departments/LUESA/Solid+Waste/Recycling+Drop+Off+Centers/foxholrecy.htm - broken link)

Here in Charlotte you can stuff it into one of the 90 gallon rolling containers that you put out on the street once a week. If it doesn't fit then try leaving it on the street with the rest of the garbage. It probably won't be there in the morning.

NO way it fits into the bin, and I know it's not supposed to go in there...all the hazardous stuff inside it. The thing is a behemouth, took DH and I !straining to get it off the entertainment unit and into the garage....I don't think it'll be gone from the curb simply because one person cannot lift the thing!

A lot of "pickers" are 2-person teams and you would be surprised at the things they take. But I can understand your concern about having to get it out there only to have to do something else with it later. There are places that recycle TVs and telephones, google it to see if one is near you.

Try Craigslist first - see if you can get a few bucks for it, and someone to come get it from you. You never know!

Some schools use stuff like that for classes/clubs. I donated an old small tv/vcr combo a few years ago to my local hs. It kind of depends what classes/clubs the school has to offer whether they'll accept it. You could call your local or nearby hs to see if it could be used.
