Green Your TV: Recycle It

Recycle tvs rather than throw them away It's fall and that means new TV shows and nonstop sports action. But while you watch, your carbon footprint continues to grow. This week's tips are about how to green your TV habits.

Tip #3: Proper Disposal

When it comes time to part ways with your TV (whether for moral or mechanical reasons), avoid contributing to the ever-growing pile of e-waste by finding a local recycler. E-cycling can prevent toxic substances like lead from polluting landfills and allows for the reuse of materials (also check out Sony's Take Back Recycling Program). If your TV still functions, you can sell, trade, or donate it.

Tell us: Have you recycled a TV? If so, how?
