If buried in the ground, it will become a source of heavy metals.

There are several places for the disposal of old household appliances that accept them for recycling or recycling. For example, you can recycle an old refrigerator, washing machine and stove, gas and electric, as they are a source of non-ferrous and ferrous metals. For recycling, you can carry plastic, glass or rubber elements of a TV, microwave, VCR.
You can return your old equipment to a repair shop. But at the same time, remember that a TV set produced during the Soviet era is unlikely to be accepted, but modern technology will be taken from you with great pleasure. Of course, it is impossible to get a fabulous sum for this, but this is much better than just throwing it in the trash.
Today, in most large stores specializing in the sale of new household equipment, promotions are very often held, allowing you to exchange old equipment for new ones. As a result, by handing over to them, for example, an old TV, you can get a discount on the purchase of a new one. In such stores, in addition to TVs, you can exchange cartridges, an old manual meat grinder, microwave ovens, blenders and much more. At the same time, it is not necessary to deal with the delivery of oversized cargo on your own, for this you can use the services of loaders, kindly provided by the store itself. This service is often completely free.
Alternatively, you can give the old, but still working equipment to people in need. Remember that by renting out old equipment, you not only free your house or apartment from unnecessary garbage, but also take care of the safety of the environment.
