Maybe you got a new large screen TV over the holidays. That can be exciting, as are most new electronic devices for many people. But, when you think about it, every new device means there’s probably an old one that’s not working, is unwanted, or no longer needed.
During the holidays there are hundreds of thousands of new devices and televisions that are received as gifts, for example. But this also means that there is an almost equally large amount of electronic waste, or e-waste, and old televisions that now have to be disposed of.
And that kind of disposal requires much more than tossing things into your residential waste bin.
Which, by the way, isn’t legal where we live anyway!
Getting rid of all the wrapping paper, plastic, foam, and cardboard after Christmas was relatively easy. Sure, it might have taken a few trips in the waste management trucks, but it was gone eventually. Getting rid of your old TV, on the other hand, can be difficult and cost you money.
Fortunately for our friends and neighbors in the greater Fremont area, we have a great solution at Junk King Fremont for your television disposal needs. Not only are we experts with television and e-waste disposal, but we have the experience and the equipment to make your television disposal chore quick and painless for you!
Television Disposal and Heavy Metal
Generally speaking, televisions and computer (and gaming) monitors fall under the umbrella term of e-waste. What is that you ask? Good question!
According to the website at CalRecycle,
“E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their “useful life.” Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products.”
And the problem inherent with so many electronics is the not-so-nice chemicals and toxic metals residing inside of them.
For example, televisions and old computer monitors were once made with technology that used a cathode ray tube, or CRT. These are the large, pyramid-shaped devices with a screen attached to the front end. This made up the bulk of the TV.
And this configuration is a potential hazard because of the contents of the CRT.
For example, the glass enclosing a cathode ray tube can contain up to eight pounds of lead, a layer of cadmium-based phosphorous, and other toxic heavy metals. Keep in mind that an old TV by itself is not a health threat – and that’s a good thing as there are probably still thousands of them sitting in households all over the East Bay!
But if the glass on a CRT is broken – a possibility if it were dumped into a landfill, for example – it can release lead and other toxic materials into the air and the ground. And the old cathode ray tube televisions can sit, decaying, in a landfill for 20 or 30 years.
And that’s just old television disposal challenges. Now we have to deal with the new flat-screen TVs.
While they don’t use lead-filled glass CRTs, flat-screen TVs have toxins and hazardous materials in their components, not to mention in the plastics, copper wiring, and circuit boards.
So, the question remains, “What do you do with them?”
