What To Do With An Old Tube TV

If you’re wondering what to do with a tube tv, this post should straighten that out for you.  Most people want the biggest and best tv’s.  Because technology is always being upgraded, what was once a great tv you may now not be that happy with.

For this reason, you may want to dispose of your old tv.  However, doing so can be a challenge.

Not All TV’s Can Be Safely Removed Without Help

THE TRUTH IS THIS: Not all tv’s can be safely removed without help.

If your TV is over 42”, it will likely be difficult for you to carry out on your own.  Especially if you are getting rid of an old tube tv which can be large, bulky and hard to get rid of. 

In addition, you may need to be aware of the best way to dispose of your television set.  Your old tube tv might be made of hazardous material and should not be thrown into the trash like your regular waste.

In addition, tube tv’s are hard to get rid of for other reasons too.  In addition to being large and bulky, there is no market for used tube tv’s.  By today’s standards, their picture quality and adaptivity is very low.
