The Benefits of Proper TV Disposal

As we depend on digital products, like televisions, for entertainment, we also need to learn how to discard them appropriately. Broadly, electronic waste or e-waste is the useless parts or components that make up the TV and every other electronic device. We need to discard electronic junks properly so that we can maintain a healthy, toxic-free community. Over the years, many countries have endeavored to competently manage and standardize the clearance of electronic waste.

Problems Associated with the Wrong Way of TV Disposal

Old TV pile stackA wrong way of disposing of television components is by dumping it in a landfill or by incinerator. This technique of waste clearance is highly detrimental to the ecological system, particularly if the landfill site is close to residential areas.

The television parts comprise Copper, Gold, Iron, Quartz, and Rare-Earth Metals such as Yttrium found in LED Television, Cerium, and Europium. When rain falls on an old television set dumped on a landfill site, the rain washes off the flame-resistant brominated compounds into the soil. This triggers environmental hazards and health problems.

It is unethical to burn defective electronic devices such as televisions in an incinerator. The out-turn is that it emits unwholesome matter into the air. These substances, mostly fly ash and slags, hence creating a fog and people that are close to the burning site can experience difficulties in breathing and a scorching sensation in the eyes.

Safe Method of Disposing of Old TV Scraps

Television sets contain resourceful components which, when utilized or recycled, produce significant metals and raw materials that are vital in our country’s energy sector. This is why our society needs to imbibe the culture of recycling. Recycling and replacement technology are the best ways to dispose of these electronic gadgets. Since there are valuable parts in a television set, it is better to give out your old TV to a local recycling facility or mines. Also, recyclers can use the rare earth metals found in the gadget as raw materials for new gadgets. The recyclers have a standard process by which they deconstruct, sort, and segregate valuable parts of a television set.

According to the regulations in twenty-five US states, it is illegal to dispose of waste using a dumpster. Disposal of e-waste guarantees a safe environment and ensures that TV owners do not waste precious metals. Proper waste disposal enables the community: to conserve landfill space; maintain a hygienic environment; create a brand-new product through recycling; sustain the economic value of precious metals; protect humans against preventable diseases.

Getting Rid of Old Furniture Effectively 

At a particular point in time, you may want to upgrade or declutter your apartment.  This is when you think of overhauling some properties that do not have value anymore. There are heavy wooden items, such as kitchen cabinets, vestments, and couch, which homeowners may find difficult to dispose of.  

Pile of old furnitureThere are numerous ways in which you can get rid of old furniture. Before you purchase new products from furniture companies to replace the used one, you need to know if it is no longer useful or worn out. What you intend to do with your old couch depends on your budget, room space, and level of creativity.   

Some users prefer to reprocess the old couch so that they can acquire a new one. Some house occupants prefer to follow these steps; take out the squab; rip the fabric open; cut away the frame support; convey the wooden pieces to the closest metal bin or makeshift roll-off dumpsters. Some users may redesign it for a new application. However, the method of discarding this article of furniture also depends on the kind of materials used in producing it. 

 Here are the constructive methods by which you can unload old, second-class furniture; 

  1. One of the best ways to discard useless furniture is to hire a company that specializes in junk removal or waste management. Hiring a local junk removal company is necessary when you cannot breakdown the furniture into bits and pieces.  The company disposes of the furniture by either: giveaway, reselling, improving its purpose. They protect the environment by dumping unusable wooden structures professionally according to state regulations.  
  2. Another way of jettisoning your outworn furniture is to give it out for free on Craigslist. Craigslist is an American website that specializes in classified adverts and commercial services. You can also approach a donation company such as the Salvation Army to help you evacuate it from your home for free. You must be mindful that these companies only cart away items of furniture that are obsolete but still usable. 
  3. The third best way is by labeling your furniture “free stuff” or “curb alert” and displaying it in your frontage. This method is quite good when you are in a busy neighborhood. Someone who needs it will come around to pick it up and once that is done, your apartment becomes spacious. Note that when you are putting your furniture outside, you need to be sure of the weather condition. Extreme weather conditions can damage the upholstery.  

Therefore, when considering disposing of your cabinet work, household effects, and upholstery, you may want to consider one of the options listed above. These methods are effective, safe, and friendly to the environment. You have the chance to circumvent tariffs at municipal dumping grounds. You are also lending a helping hand to people in need when you give away your old items. Contact us for more information.
