If it is 19 inches or smaller you could try here:
Home

I think Best Buy will take them for sure:
Electronics and Appliances Recycling at Best Buy

Bluestar is one. Waste Management will accept them as well. I have used a very small non profit business off Wahsatch St called Community Intersections. They had the lowest fee of the three.

Blue Star is nice because they provide jobs for special needs people.

Took one there recently, IIRC they charge 29-cents per pound to recycle it.

I would've given it away but craigslist is full of old tube-type TVs that are offered for free and no one wants them.

Like old washers,dryers, and hot water heaters just leave it on the driveway w/ a "FREE" sign and it will be gone by nightfall.

Lot's of folks who drive around that pick up scrap metal etc.....

Bluestar is very proactive about this. They were started by the President of Qualtek Manufacturing as a means to reach out into the community and provide some opportunities for special needs people and I don't doubt they can make it a sustainable enterprise.

For most residential applications, Best Buy will work fine. If your a business or landlord where you may have large items or large quantities, Best Buy can refuse or limit what they will accept.
