What Are CRT TVs?

Do you have an ancient television in your house that is just collecting dust? 

CRT (cathode ray tube) televisions have been around for a long time, and many of us still have one around the house. Because of their large forms and (sometimes) hefty weight, these TVs are difficult to get rid of. Furthermore, due to the hazardous compounds they contain, they are difficult to recycle.

You may be seeking ways to get rid of outdated CRT television sets for a variety of reasons. 

Whether you’re purchasing a new flat-screen TV or intending to move soon, here are some practical and environmentally-friendly options other than disposing of your old TV!

1. Donate Your CRT TVs to Someone Who Has Use for Them

If you have any old TVs that are still functional, consider giving them away instead. Check with your local school or a public library to see if they need a television. You may also check with Google to search for institutions that might need your donation.

2. Sell Your Old CRT TVs Online

Are you in need of some additional cash? Secure a little bit of cash by selling your old TV!

With the growing e-commerce industry, you are now able to sell your old television on the internet. For this sort of transaction, Craigslist and eBay are the best options. Check to see whether your television qualifies for an online sale and make sure it’s in good working order. 

3. Return Your CRT TV to the Manufacturer to Recycle

Many electronic businesses, manufacturers, and retailers alike will recycle your old television. Depending on their takeback or returns program, you may be able to just return it for free, while some may need payment of a recycling charge.

4. Give Your Old TV to a CRT Glass Destruction Service

Toxic chemicals such as lead, mercury, beryllium, and cadmium are found in CRT televisions and monitors. In many situations, your old television isn’t recycled at all but instead gets dumped in a warehouse someplace.
