DIY TV disposalDIY TV disposal. It’s a bigger challenge than one might initially think. In fact, it’s downright difficult to get rid of this common electronic. This is due to a number of factors, including hazardous materials. But, if you have an old television to unload, you’ll need a plan of action. (Which is why so many people rely on a local junk removal service.) So, read on to learn more about how to go about DIY TV disposal and what you need to know.

Common Obstacles

Now, if you haven’t yet experienced trying to get rid of a TV, you’re in for a rude surprise. Yes, it seems like it’s an easy thing to do but that isn’t the case at all. Okay, the reasons why are easy to understand. One reason is that TVs contain a whole host of hazardous materials. Another reason is the very fact that it isn’t new — it's used (and old).

Electronic products are made from valuable resources and materials, including metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Donating or recycling consumer electronics conserves our natural resources and avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by manufacturing virgin materials. --U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Then, there’s the matter of demand. Since it’s both used and old technology, there simply is relatively no market for it. And, because it contains hazardous materials, there is a recycling disposal fee attached to it. All of this, not to mention the fact that it’s not able to handle the latest high definition.

Because it’s something you have to deal with in one way or another, you can try one or more of these helpful DIY TV disposal options:

  • Repair it. If you switched the power on recently only to discover it's not responding or it's not functioning correctly, it could well be a simple fix. Try to troubleshoot it researching the symptoms and see if it's a component you can replace.
  • Donate it. Now, if it is in working condition, but you simply don't want it taking up precious space, then you just might be able to donate it to a local school, shelter, church, or other charity for continued use.
  • Repurpose it. This seems strange at first but there is plenty of inspiration out there on the web. People convert projection TVs into different furniture and other uses, as well.
  • Junk it outright. To get rid of it right away without the hassle, you can call a local junk hauling service to pick it up. While you're at it, you can offload a whole
    lot more.
