Older TVs can be recycled [Louisville Courier-Journal]
Did you replace a television as a result of last week's digital transition? If you have an old TV set to dispose of, you may want to consider recycling it. In Louisville, the Louisville Metro Solid Waste Management CyberCycle program recycles old televisions and other electronics at no charge. Many other cities have similar programs designed to keep potentially toxic materials in televisions out of landfills. Plus, the plastic, steel and copper in used electronics can be recycled and used in new products.
In Louisville, residents can take their used televisions and other electronics to the CyberCycle collection location at 636 Meriwether Avenue, Tuesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. or on Saturdays 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you're in another city, the Kentucky Division of Waste Management offers a comprehensive list of electronics recyclers in that state. And the Consumer Electronics Association has a great resource for locating other electronics recyclers at MyGreenElectronics.com.
