Recycle old televisions

Share this article

RESIDENTS in Derbyshire are being reminded that there is no need to throw out old television equipment in order to convert to digital TV, when remaining areas of the county switch to digital television in August and September.

A spokesman said that even old televisions can be easily converted using a set top box costing from around £20.

However, residents who do choose to replace an old set are being urged to take them to their nearest household waste recycling centre to be recycled rather then throw them out to be put in landfill.
