Recycling TVs: What You Need to Know Before You Do It

As technology advances, more and more people are replacing their old TVs with newer models. But what should you do with your old TV? Recycling is a great option, but there are a few things you should know before you do it. Here’s what you need to know about recycling TVs.

What Can Be Recycled?

Most TVs can be recycled, but not all of them. Generally speaking, any TV that is less than 10 years old can be recycled. However, some older models may still be accepted by certain recyclers. It’s important to check with the recycler before bringing in your TV to make sure it can be recycled.

How Do I Recycle My TV?

The best way to recycle your TV is to find a local electronics recycler or e-waste facility. Many cities and towns have dedicated recycling centers for electronics, so check with your local government to see if there’s one near you. You can also search online for local recyclers who accept TVs.

What Happens When I Recycle My TV?


When you recycle your TV, it will be taken apart and the components will be sorted into different categories. The metals and plastics will then be melted down and reused in the manufacture of new products. This helps reduce waste and conserve natural resources.

Recycling your old TV is a great way to help the environment and keep hazardous materials out of landfills. Just make sure you know what can be recycled and how to properly dispose of it before doing so. With the right information, recycling your TV can be easy and hassle-free.
