    I recently upgraded from my old CRT to a Samsung LCD. Does anyone know where I can take my old CRT monitor? Nothing is wrong with it, so I just don't want to throw it in the trash.

    You should probably open it up and fiddle with the capacitors inside...you know, just to make sure everything is ok.

    You can use them as spare TVs. I need to buy a couple of external TV tuners soon for the same reason.

    They're considered toxic waste just like household chemicals, motor oil, batteries, etc. Your city (or its trash collection contractor) should have instructions on how to dispose of it properly.

    if ti still works, take it to a local chraity and donate it. we have several here associated with the humane society and abuse shelters.

    If it does not work, take it to the recycle center.

    In California, you can just take it to the local dump, and they have an electronics recycling facility there where you can just leave it for no charge. I don't know how other states work.
