The Illinois Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Act, effective Jan. 1, 2012, prohibits disposing of unwanted electronics in regular trash for burial in landfills.

Televisions are included in this ban and must be disposed of properly. 


Some retailers will dispose of an old TV when you have a new one delivered, but may charge a transportation fee.
