Marcia Scherocman wasn't sure what to do with two old analog TV sets after buying a flat-panel TV for her kitchen in preparation for Friday's nationwide switch to digital TV.

Then the Montgomery resident read about TV recycling in her city newsletter, and she hauled both sets to 2TRG in Blue Ash.

"I was worried that those things would be sitting in my basement for eternity," said Scherocman, 69.

Scherocman is one of hundreds of area residents who have recycled more than 870 analog TVs since January at 2TRG, 11093 Kenwood Road.

More are expected at a TV drop-off for Hamilton County residents at 2TRG on Saturday, the day after analog broadcasts end on channels 5, 9, 12 and 19. Low-power channels 25 and 38 will cut off analog by next Monday.
