    All they have are some folks Ring video showing the "pranksters" leaving the old television sets onto their porches.

    free dumping disguised as a "prank." Unless you catch a recycling event, you a lot of times have to pay to get rid of an old box TVs. It was all in the master plan

    I don't think he was that advanced of a TV... He wasn't properly tuned in

    I'm unsure if it applies to older TVs such as these, or if it's still an available service since I last used it around 4 years ago, but as far as I know you can still drop old TVs (or other electronics) off at Best Buy locations and they recycle them for you, free of charge. Years ago when my gf's ex was kicked out of their apartment he left his 50+" plasma behind because it had been damaged and no longer worked, so I hauled the giant fucker over to Best Buy, dumped it out onto the ground outside the front doors and waited for an employee to come out. They accepted it, and I hopped back into the truck and drove away as three spindly teenage Best Buy employees struggled to lift the beadtly tv onto a flatbed cart and take it inside.

    Man, I just got rid of two of those last week. Luckily our local transfer station has a separate trailer for E-waste. Any electrical or electronic items can go in there for free. Needless to say I’ve been weeding out all of the obsolete/broken items that I can find around the house.
