Council advice to recycle old TVs

After the switch to digital began in Gloucestershire this week, we're being advised to recycle or reuse our old TVs.

Gloucestershire County Council are expecting a huge increase in televisions being recycled during the digital switchover, due to more people buying new digital-ready flat screens. Should you wish to recycle your TV, you can take it to any of the 5 Household Recycling Centres around the county, as around 96% of a relatively modern TV can now be recycled.

However, David Hughes from Gloucestershire County Council says that it's also a good idea to reuse your television set by donating it to a furniture scheme, so that others can benefit from it.
