NO!I found about a 25 inch analog TV by the dumpster.
I thought about salvaging parts from it.
I would need help discharging the large capacitor it has.

Do you think it's worth the effort?
Texas requires TV makers to take back tvs. (2007)
I read that they contain several pounds of lead.
Not sure if enforcement is a top priority as I saw TVs at 2 dumpsters.
I agree with you and won't risk my back.
That is their advertisement but when we showed up we got, "we only take TVs on Fridays". We showed up Friday, and got, "our manager is not in right now, he needs to approve all TVs". I hope you have better luck.The price is pretty reasonable.

It turns out that the glass in a CRT contains a lot of lead. A big CRT can contain up to 5 pounds (2.2 kilograms) of lead. It is mixed into the glass for two reasons:
Nooo!!!!Another dumpster is for clear or white glass throw CRT in this dumpster.
