Question by jugghayd: What is the correct way to dispose of a TV?
I have a 22″ TV which works for about 5 minutes, and then the sound slowly gets lower and lower until you can’t hear it anymore. We have another TV so I don’t want to pay to fix it. What’s the best, safest way to throw out a TV?
And no, I’m not just sitting on the volume button.

What I did was bring it to a TV repair shop, dropped it off and asked the guy to give me a call when he knows how much it was going to cost to fix it. I had to put a deposit down just in case I don’t come to pick it up, and he need to dispose it. So, I didn’t pick it up, and he disposed of it for me.
The best way is probably to just call a TV repair shop and ask if it’s possible for them to dispose it for you. I’m pretty sure that a TV has a lot of heavy metals that can be disastrous to the environment.
