Bay of Plenty residents heading to the holiday home over the summer are being encouraged to recycle their unwanted televisions. Televisions contain valuable components such as
copper and steel, which can be recycled locally, or sent overseas to specialist recycling facilities.
Anyone with an unwanted set is encouraged to take it to one of the many TV TakeBack collection points. More than 170,000 TVs have been collected to date under the programme. Visit www.tvtakeback.govt.nz for information on drop-off sites.
