    This. Or Facebook Markerplace. People collect/still use the vacuum tubes. Don’t they contain mercury?

    Throw them in your bonfire, likely listed for 99 cents at the local Goodwill.

    We've got two at work. Emptied Wednesday mornings.

    The only time there's been a problem with staff discreetly putting stuff in them was when the boss found a whole heap of broken concrete in there.

    My friend Mike told me later the noise of all those lumps of concrete going into the metal bin was "rather loud". Especially at 5.00am.

    Someone put one on the curb down the street from me. Wife wants it but I have no intention of getting it.

    You can do what NASA did when things are too big or too expensive to move or tear down:

    It was a 60" Sony LCD from 2004. Worked fine. Probably weighed 150-200lbs.

    I just put it up on marketplace and was patient.

    We had a Toshiba "36 tube TV. Cube shaped with NO handles. It was in perfect working order. TV and remote. 106 lbs of awkward moving. I tried getting rid of it for years. Had some remodeling done on the house and told the guys that wanted an old refrigerator I had. You can have the fridge, but must take TV with. They almost left them both!!! They reluctantly took them.

    not useless and you can sell them.

    look for a retro video game shop in your area. they will take them. i bought a 27 inch boob tube off FB a couple of years ago and have a 30 year old NES hooked to it.

    the old tvs have the correct aspect ratio for the old games AND they work with the light guns.
