A study by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) revealed that households receiving broadcast signals only over-the-air (OTA) expect to remove fewer than 15 million televisions from their homes through 2010, 95%¬†of which will be sold, donated, or recycled.   "Consumers are far more likely to recycle, reuse, give away or sell analog TVs than throw them away," says CEA's Senior Director of Market Research Tim Herbert. "While some have speculated that millions of TVs would enter the waste stream, this new study suggests that is not the case."

According to the survey, consumers report recycling nearly 30% more TVs in 2007 than in 2005. That trend also extends to other CE categories. While only 3% more devices were removed from homes in 2007, 27% more devices were recycled. At the same time, the number of CE products that end up in the trash is decreasing-down 7% from two years earlier.

Among those consumers that did report throwing away a TV in the last year, 42% reported that they weren't aware of recycling programs for electronics.
