The Lancaster Recycling Center uses Advanced Electronics Recycling (Hudson, MA) to recycle TUBE televisions. AER has a large backlog of TUBE televisions at their business and are not able to accept any more TUBE televisions at the present time. It is suggested that patrons take TUBE televisions to Best Buy. There is a Best Buy in Leominster. Best Buy accepts TUBE televisions that are less than 32" at no charge.
NOTE: The Recycling Center can NOT take furniture or wood. Thank you for your understanding.
