How do I dispose of a television?

Electronics with screens are banned from disposal in the landfill, so you can’t throw them away with your trash. Televisions must go to the Hazchem Center at the Des Moines County Regional Landfill for disposal. The fee for any size TV is $15, cash or check only. As a service to our customers, Burlington Solid Waste crews will pick up TVs by appointment. 5 Trash Tags are required. TVs must be intact for pick up. To get on the schedule for pick up send an email to and provide your name, address, and telephone number.
