As a rule of thumb the California Integrated Waste Management Board has set forth the following guideline regarding electronic waste as it pertains to waste disposal in the standard waste stream:
"What should be done with old electronic products? Computer monitors, televisions and other electronic equipment should NOT be disposed of with regular garbage. Working TVs, monitors, computers and other consumer electronics can be sold or donated thereby prolonging their useful life. Nonfunctioning TVs and computer monitors should be recycled by an organization equipped to handle them.
