So what exactly happens to this “recycled” electronics and such? My guess is that anything worthwhile is removed, and sold, and the rest or most, goes into a landfill in China or Ghana. Several major publications have written articles on it. Hopefully someone with more education on this topic can inform.

You can also drop off most electronics at Best Buy for no-fee recycling. They also take cables, CDs, and chargers. I think there is a 2 item per day limit, but a quick google of Best Buy Recycling programming will give you all the details. I have taken many things to them without any problems.

Anyone know where to recycle larger TV’s?

Every recycle program I see has a limit of 32 inches or so. I have an old 37 inch tube tv, and no one will take it. It’s frustrating to see all these recycle days, and programs like best buy, and none will accept it. I understand they are a pain to deal with (it’s very heavy) but I’m starting to feel like my only options are to either leave it cluttering my basement or dump it somewhere that I’m not supposed to.

I’d be fine with paying a large item fee or something like that.
