    What do you do with these old HUGE HEAVY TV's,
    Remember the Zenith 200 # old ones?
    They're useless and no charity will take them (can't say I blame them, they certanily can't sell it)

    We always had a Zenith tv, a big console model; they were, at the time, the high end television on the market, and a major purchase.

    I lucked out and managed to sell one for about $150 recently. Try facebook marketplace.

    Usually you have to pay someone to come get them these days.

    You might want to move it out of the living room first.

    If it has a FANTASTIC cabinet you might be able to sell it. People like the cabinet or just the old, seasoned wood. I’ve repurposed or salved wood from several old TV and stereo cabinets.

    Friend of mine acros the street put his old (and barely working) fridge at the curb and put a sign FREE -- one week went by and there stood the fridge. Changed the sign to read $40.00 -- somebody stole it that night.:dancingbanana:

    I'd list it on craigslist as free to good home, come and get it. Just to get rid of it.

    Our landfill will take any object with a screen for $15. In the case of most tube TVs you cannot even give those things away.

    If it's a console, make a pet den out of it.

    Our last TV before flat screen was a huge Sony, 30-32” as I recall. At the time it was a premium TV, two tuners, wireless headset, etc, etc. I gave it to a friend as a garage TV 10 or 12 years ago. It’s still going strong on a high shelf in his garage.

    When my uncle died he left a lot of furniture no one wanted. His house was right behind one of our businesses. My mom had us put it all out in the parking lot with big signs saying FREE. Only a couple things got taken.

    The next day we put prices on everything and it all vanished in the night.

    Our town has electronic recycling every few months. Check around.

    That's excellent. I still have a 27" Sony CRT in the basement for old video games but it's a Trinitron, not a 70's console or I'd probably just go ahead and do that. Wifey wants it gone, but she'd probably agree to this idea.

    Our county land field takes them and any electronics. I had one that was my FILs. Yes, they are heavy. I could barely get it out of the truck. It had a beautiful picture still, but we have light weight flat screens now.
