TV Takeback a Success
Our TV Takeback programme has now ended. In total we collected around 2,700 TVs for
recycling. The programme was run as the digital TV switchover took place and offered people
the opportunity to recycle their old TV for free, as part of a national programme subsidised by
the Ministry for the Environment. Now that the programme has come to an end, TVs can still
be recycled in Selwyn at the Pines Recovery Plant but there is a $10 or $5 cost, depending on
the type of TV.
