Will they haul away the old tv?

No, I have to deal with the old one.

No big problem as there are several ways to go with it. The old one
still works but has a black spot on the screen. It is a 48 inch screen
and the black spot is about 3 inches wide and goes about 3/4 the way
from the top to the bottom. On dark screens it is not noticable, but
shows up on the light screens.

I could probably sell it for $ 25, put it on several free places on the
internet,or just haul it off to the recycle place that takes TV sets for

Around here we just set it on the curb and the carting company deals
with it. Same with white goods or just about anything else.

eWaste laws vary by state. This list is over 2 years old and I'll bet
it's outdated since things are moving fairly rapidly in the eWaste space.

The carting contract here includes recycling.

... Best Buy sucks just sayin

I posted my experience yesterday about how nice the CSR at one of the BB
stores treated me. I wonder if it's an on-line vs. face-to-face issue.

I agree that you were treated like crap and I'd sure be ****ed too.

They were very polite while they were screwing me.
