That was what I thought.
||I threw away several a few years ago as no-one wanted them.|
||There are a few companies that will take things like that away to get what they can for recycling, but no idea if you have one near you.|
There is lots of useful stuff you can get from them but it depends on your outlook. Generally there is a ton of good copper etc found in them and many useful components too, but unless you tend to store that stuff to later sell in bulk it won't be worth your time to do.
Sadly most of the components are near useless to anyone who does not own or repair that sort of screen, and they are few and dropping by the day in numbers. No scrap company will give you anything so your best bet is likely the local skip and look for where the tvs go.
One thing to note though is there is almost no use you will be able to make safely from the tube itself as those things are lined with some rather unpleasant materials. If you are even slightly unsure about them your best bet is the skip. I tend to grab one now and again as the reams of copper wiring and magnets can come in handy but that is about all.
||Don't freecycle them. The power consumption of led vs crt is so different that it is cheaper to buy an led screen than use a free CRT screen.|
