Our TV Disposal & Recycling Services

We've all experienced the challenge of moving an old, bulky, heavy TV set. It's as if those old televisions were designed to be cumbersome and difficult to handle. Could that be why so many people still have old TVs sitting around their homes, taking up space and gathering dust?

Another reason disposing of a TV is challenging is because they are classified as e-waste, or electronic waste items. In waste management, TVs contain harmful chemicals that can pollute our environment if they are improperly disposed of in landfills. This is why TV disposal needs to be taken seriously, both for the safety of individuals handling the set and for the health of our environment. Two Men and a Junk Truck provides an efficient, safe, and eco-friendly TV disposal service to make the process easy for you. Our experienced television removal team will have the manpower to haul away that old TV set without causing any damage to your home. We handle all the heavy lifting, so there's no need for you to carry items out to the curb. Additionally, we ensure that the TV is disposed of at a proper recycling facility to minimize harm to our ecosystem.

TV Disposal Statistics

As we prepare for holidays, engage in spring cleaning, or undertake large DIY projects, the need for debris removal becomes apparent. This often includes getting rid of old furniture, fixtures, and appliances, including old TVs.

With the increasing trend of homeowners upgrading to newer, larger, digital flat-screen TVs, there's a surplus of older TV models in households. According to Statista, the number of TV households in the United States was estimated at 119.6 million in 2017-2018, with almost 22 million digital TVs shipped in the last quarter of 2017.

However, disposing of old TVs, especially CRT-type sets, involves a process that requires time, effort, and resources due to the hazardous materials they contain. Proper disposal is essential to prevent these toxins from leaching into the environment.

What Is TV Disposal?

TV disposal involves properly getting rid of either CRT-type television sets or newer flat-screen appliances. While the two types of TVs differ significantly in terms of technology and construction, both require appropriate disposal methods.

Older CRT sets contain highly toxic materials that pose health and environmental risks if improperly disposed of. On the other hand, newer flat-screen units have their own hazardous material concerns. Most TVs cannot be disposed of in municipal waste bins and require specialized recycling facilities due to regulations governing e-waste disposal.

Disposing of Old TVs Responsibly

Old TVs should not be left in household trash bins or taken to landfills due to environmental and health hazards. Instead, various disposal options are available:

Selling: If the TV is in good working condition, consider selling it through yard sales or online platforms like Craigslist or eBay. 

Donating: Donate old TVs to non-profit organizations, schools, shelters, or thrift stores if they are still usable. 

Recycling: Contact a reputable junk hauling firm like Two Men and a Junk Truck for proper disposal and recycling of old TVs. 

Landfill disposal: In many states and communities, TVs and electronics are prohibited from landfills due to environmental regulations.
