Old TV

There are certain cares that the consumer needs to take into account before disposing of your old TV, some specific according to the type of device. In this article, we explain everything you need to know to do everything correctly.

Televisions with LCD, plasma or LED screens are composed of various polymers, in varying degrees of concentration, while old CRT (cathode ray tube) televisions, popularly known as tube televisions, have a high concentration of lead, a highly polluting chemical element.

When disposing of an electronic device together with normal garbage, there is also a risk that people who collect in landfills, for example, will be contaminated and become seriously ill. Contact with lead and mercury, some of the substances in the components of televisions, is dangerous and should be avoided.

If the device is defective and cannot be repaired, the user can opt for reverse logistics, or in extreme cases (when the TV is very old and there is no company to contact, or if the manufacturer does not want to remove it), you can resort to cooperatives so that the product is disposed of properly.

How to sell a TV to a customer

The supermarket chain Walmart has done a great job with a spot in which they have collected not all, but a good part of the most representative cars of pop culture. From the car of ‘Ghostbusters’ to Bumblebee through the incombustible DMC DeLorean from ‘Back to the Future’.

Then the ECTO-1, the old 1959 Miller-Meteor Cadillac Miller-Meteor used by ‘Ghostbusters’ to go in search of the paranormal presences that made an appearance in New York City, appears in full action and sounding its hoarse siren.

As if the artillery of iconic cars wasn’t enough, heading to Walmart was the legendary image of KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand), none other than the all-black Pontiac Trans-Am from ‘The Fantastic Car’ rolling through the desert with a headlight that gave away the operation of its scanner.

Already in the Walmart parking lot, Lightning McQueen appears doing some drifting, the 1984 Ford Econoline van dressed as the dog from ‘Two Dumb and Dumber’ makes a triumphant entry sweeping in to park right next to the Ford LTD Wagon from 1983’s ‘The Wacky American Family Vacation’ (a nod to those in charge of translating the titles of the movies and series).
