Folks in the Champaign-Urbana, IL area, please note that the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore no longer accepts cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions and monitors. According to a ReStore representative:
“As of October 15, we no longer accept Televisions and Computer monitors (non-working) for recycling. At our discretion, we may accept fully-functioning television sets larger than 32 inches in diagonal screen measure, depending mostly on the space we have available to display and show the working condition of those units. We do not accept Console (cabinet) televisions or rear-projection units of any size. We continue to accept all non-CRT electronics such as keyboards, printers, fax machines and the like, working or not, for recycling.”
The Champaign County Electronics Recycling/Reuse Guide has been updated accordingly. See http://www.co.champaign.il.us/county%20RRR/recycle/recycleelectronics.pdf for information on where CRTs are still accepted locally, as well as where other electronic devices can be recycled.
