If I have a small TV and I throw it away in the garbage can I get in trouble?

    Depending on your state, YES! Next year in Illinois there will be a $10,000 for illegally dumping certain electronics–including tvs. Check the first link to see what laws apply in your state. More and more states are creating mandatory electronic recyling centers. These centers allow you to get rid of your old tvs and electronics responsibly.

    In my city, you are susceptible to fines for not recycling. They may even search your trash upon pickup, and it is difficult to hide a tv in your trash. Usually you can find your own area’s procedures. In mine, you simply leave the television out on the curb, and they will sort it out.
