Can it be recycled: near your postcode?

Did you know?

As part of the UK’s digital switchover you do not need to get a new TV – virtually any TV can be upgraded to digital using a digital box which are available from around £20.

However, if you do want to dispose of your analogue TV and upgrade to a digital one, why not consider donating it if it still in good working order.


What else can I do with them?

If your television or monitor is in good working order, you could donate to a worthy cause.

  • Freecycle is a non-profit movement that encourages people to give things for free in their local community.
  • A local school, community project or youth organisation may be glad to take your television or monitor.

You may also be able to sell your television or monitor - try advertising in a local paper or notice board.

Donating monitors

Monitors can also be donated to charities who welcome donations of computer equipment. Go to our Computer recycling page for details
