    CRT Buyer found by me!

    A yard here pays $.10 a pound for CRT TV's and Monitors just make sure they are intact and have cord! Now I got to get them before the cord cutters!

    Wonder what it would cost to ship a FTL from Massachusetts. What yard is crazy enough to do this?

    not sure they may try and take them to California but the weight would be an issue even from here, not like plastic bottles or cans...

    I have not gone yet, there is a fairly large tv in an alley by my house and at my fathers house he has a 32" tv that weighs at least 125 lbs. only problem is getting to it as it is stored in the garage lol! This place also buys old bbq propane tanks the kind with the older handle that you can not re fill anymore. I have one and a newer tank that the valve handle is stuck open. Yes $.10 a pound is a crazy price way better than breaking them down I will have to go and see if this is too good to be true.

    Also around here you can still sell CRT TV's at yard sales for $5 a lot of people come up from Mexico and fill there trucks and trailers up and take it back to re sell there. So if I get a good smaller one with remote, I normally sell a few at our yard sales.
