How to get rid of that old TV

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

You can save $15 by re­cy­cling your old TV at Trash Palace be­fore Welling­ton tele­vi­sion goes dig­i­tal on Septem­ber 29.

From this week, Trash Palace is of­fer­ing a spe­cial $5 rate to re­cy­cle ana­logue tele­vi­sions, un­der a pro­gramme funded by the Govern­ment’s TV Take­Back pro­gramme. The nor­mal price is $20.

The deal will last about three months, or un­til Trash Palace’s quota is filled, so get in early.

‘‘ If you are re­plac­ing or have al­ready re­placed your old TV, then we ask you to re­cy­cle it re­spon­si­bly.

‘‘ TVs con­tain some valu­able re­sources which can be re­cy­cled, as well as haz­ardous ma­te­ri­als which shouldn’t end up in the en­vi­ron­ment,’’ Trash Palace chief ex­ec­u­tive El­iz­a­beth Mea­clem said.

Ms Mea­clem said peo­ple did not need to buy a new TV to go dig­i­tal – set-top boxes could be bought which pick up dig­i­tal chan­nels on ana­logue tele­vi­sions.

More in­for­ma­tion can be found at go­ingdig­i­tal.co.nz.

The re­cy­cler will have two per­ma­nent sites avail­able and one mo­bile site to make it easy for the pub­lic to take their TVs to be re­cy­cled.

You can drop off your TV at Trash Palace, Spicer Land­fill, any day from 8.30am till 5pm.

The other lo­ca­tion is up the road from Kenepuru Hos­pi­tal at Oranga, 3 Hall Rd, Kenepuru, Mon­day till Fri­day, 7.30am till 4pm.

A Busi­ness Re­cy­cling truck will also be sta­tioned at the Porirua Satur­day Mar­kets in Cob­ham Court from Au­gust 24 till Septem­ber 14.
