It is pretty rare that someone still has a cathode ray tube (CRT) television they are using, but we know someone still has one, and many are taking up space in basements or attics. It may no longer work, and is probably taking up space in your home because you don’t know what to do with it. These older, larger televisions contain hazardous materials, and must be properly disposed of. These televisions won’t be accepted at donation centers because of how they were made. But, you can easily find a facility to take them too for the proper disposal.
For newer televisions, you can donate it or take it to a place like Best Buy for proper disposal. It is better to donate or recycle newer televisions to get more longevity out of them, instead of having them sit in a landfill. It is important to remember that newer, smart televisions may have information about you (like passwords for streaming services) stored in them, so make sure you reset the television before letting someone reuse it, or recycling it.
