DENVER (AP) -- Beginning this July, the trash truck won't be able to haul your dead TV or any other discarded electronics to a Colorado landfill.

Residents who put those items at the curb will find a green sticker warning that landfill disposal is prohibited.

According to the Denver Post, people will have to find an electronic-waste recycling facility or a program. Those programs are sometimes offered by local communities or stores.
