I apologize to those who had to wait in line for so long only to be told that your cracked/broken TV was unacceptable. That type of electronic is considered to be hazardous waste. Our company cannot/will not be responsible for its disposal. If your garbage hauler is anyone other than "The City/Town of", then they are required by law to pick up and properly dispose of it. TV's are considered a "Bulky" item. You may also take it to your local landfill for disposal. To answer the "Big Question" the electronics are sent to EPA/DEP approved, R2 certified companies here in the US for dismantling and recycling. Nothing is sent overseas. A correction to the story. PC Renewal was NOT paid a flat rate of $6,000. That is the total amount of grant money received by Ohio Co SWA. PC Renewal received a portion of it; a flat rate of $4,800 to host the event.

It was not as much of a success for those who waited an hour to be turned away because a tv was cracked or the insides were broken. Nowhere in the original article informing the public of the free drop off did it say that the TVs could not be cracked or basically have any flaws they pretty much had to be intact with nothing from inside showing. I know of several people who tried to help rid their neighborhood is TVs that people carelessly tossed in the trash and sat for months only to be turned away after waiting for a long time in traffic.
