About a year ago, I purchased a high definition television and began upgrading my in-home entertainment experience. I don’t regret it at all. When I purchased the TV, I moved my old 26-inch cathode ray tube (CRT) television to the bedroom.
The old TV is a monster. It remained on the floor in the corner of my bedroom because it was just too massive to lift to place on my dresser. It made viewing television from my bedroom uncomfortable, so I did not watch much from there, which is just as well.
Yesterday I decided to get rid of it. I looked into recycling the television but my options were limited. I could wait for an electronic recycling event hosted by Best Buy, for example. Office Depot also has a recycling program. If you bring televisions and computer monitors to the store, they will box it up and ship it to an appropriate recycling site for you.
I called ahead; apparently they did not have a box large enough for my television. Determined to get rid of it as quickly as possible, I decided to post an ad on Craigslist to see if I could get rid of the old television easily and quickly. I took a few snapshots and offered the television for free as long as the buyer would pick it up.
A response came within 20 minutes, and an hour later a student from the local university and her boyfriend were here to drag the television away. Next I’ll try to get rid of my old bed frame.
