The Great TV Take Back

Supported by the government’s Waste Minimisation Fund, the Great TV Takeback will run until 4 October 2011 to enable you to drop off at participating Warehouse stores unwanted televisions regardless of age or brand – and regardless of whether you have any intent to purchase a new television.

Recycling of the televisions is said to be according to strict environmental standards and recycled by an approved specialist recycler. Recovery rates of the embedded materials in each television are estimated to be up to 96%.

To encourage participation The Warehouse is offering prizes and discounts on purchases of new televisions and digital receivers to customers returning their old sets.

However purchase is not necessary in order to drop off your unwanted television at any of the participating Warehouse stores: Albany, Ashburton, Belfast, Bell Block, Eastgate, Gisborne, Greymouth, Hastings, Invercargill, Manukau, Masterton, Nelson, Palmerston North, Petone, South Dunedin, Te Rapa, Timaru, Waipapa, Whangarei.

How is it that I only heard about this on the news this morning? Would have been nice to hear about it a bit earlier.
