Best Buy. Any U.S. store will accept TVs up to 32 inches across for recycling, as well as other electronic gear. Best Buy will charge $10 for each TV or monitor, but consumers get a $10 gift card for Best Buy purchases. Consumers can recycle up to two electronic devices a day. Stores won't accept console televisions or sets larger than 32 inches, but might haul them away for free when a new TV is delivered from a Best Buy store. Best Buy can also arrange to pick up and recyle TVs from homes for a fee of $130.
Earth911. If all the above fail to find a free place to recycle a TV, you can check the Earth911 site for a nearby recycling location. Some such as Goodwill stores will accept only working sets and some will take any TV for free, but most will charge a small fee of $10 to $20 to accept a non-working model.
