It’s true when they say “they don’t make ’em like they used too!”
Well, we saw the truth in this for April! We saw a lot of CRT televisions dropped off that were still working great. Unfortunately, compared to today’s flat screens, which are light and compact – they don’t stack up anymore and simply take up space. Certain television models are more to repair than to replace. This is the reason for a high turn over rate on newer models. They just don’t make ’em like they used to. Interestingly, we also saw a lot of fairly newer tv’s (flat screens) being dropped off for recycling that aren’t even a couple of years old.
We hosted 4 events in April and we collected just under 60,000 lbs of E-Waste with over 1000 drop offs! Check out some of the images below!
