The Grand Junction Waste Management Recycling Center recycles much more than just plastic and glass. They also recycle electronics such as TVs, computers, cell phones and much more.
The Cost to recycle a television can run anywhere from $10 to $15. The same goes for computers.
However, Sony is giving away coupons good for $100 off the purchase of a new Sony HD TV set whenever anyone brings any TV into the recycling center. Sony TVs and all Sony accessories will be recycled for free at the center while all other TVs are subject to the normal recycling charges. An average computer can contain close to seven pounds of recyclable lead.

    On TV and on your video, you make it sound like you can take any TV down to the recycling center for FREE! After reading your post, I see that only SONY TV's are free. I was ready to take two TVs down to let them recycle them but I'm not paying up to $30 to do this.
