No one wants big old clunky TVs (or other old electronics), including the Salvation Army and Goodwill (here). Where I live you have to PAY to bring them to the dump, and it isn't cheap. We paid something like 30 bucks.

same here, except that we do have a recycling center that will take my big old clunky tv for free if I can get it there. I cannot put it out for regular trash or furniture pick up.

I traded an electric heater for a working tv. Getting the old one out and the new one in place would be easy if I had a tall, heavy duty cart.

I'm working on it. I like problem solving.

lol I was afraid I had killed this thread

Best Buy used to take old TV's and other things with "screens" (old monitors, etc.) for $10 each.

You have to talk with PEOPLE - not charities trying to make a buck. My home handyman and housekeeper will take any of this stuff. For themselves or to give to family members or friends/church members. I have never had a problem getting rid of anything I didn't want anymore. Assuming it was working and/or not falling apart.

There is a lot of truth to that. We were able to get rid of more furniture by giving it to families in need at church than by offering it to charitable organizations.

Many people have children just out of college who can not afford to buy furniture for their new places. And by getting them the furniture, the parents do not have to worry about the kid moving back in. (g)
