The Chiefly Stanhope is warning that you’ve got until 27 April to chuck out your old TVs before he whacks another filthy great levy on them:
From 27 April 2010, televisions will be banned from going to landfill and recycled for a fee at the Mitchell and Mugga Lane Resource Management Centres.
The ACT is the first Australian jurisdiction to introduce a ban on televisions going to landfill. It was also one of the first to ban e-waste from being dumped in landfill in 2005.
The fee for recycling televisions at the Mitchell and Mugga Lane Resource Management Centres will range from $15 to $40 depending on the size of the television set.
Or you can do what everyone else does with CRT monitors right now… dump them in the neighbours skip with some cardboard boxes on top.
