According to HSE over two million TV’s are discarded each year.
Whether you’re an individual who is upgrading your flat screen TV or a business that is disposing of old monitor screens, it is important that you know the process of appropriate disposal for your own safety and the benefit of the environment.
The disposal and recycling of televisions and monitors is covered under WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) regulations. Disposal of TV’s and monitors amongst general waste is illegal as more often than not, they contain hazardous materials that cannot be disposed of in landfill.
The average TV is a combination of multiple materials including valuable substances such as plastic, steel, aluminium, copper, gold and silver. Hazardous toxins such as lead, mercury, flame retardants, cadmium, beryllium and bisphenol-A can also be found in the waste.
As a result of this complex mix of materials, WEEE recycling poses a number of risks that need to be adequately managed. Incorrect disposal and damage to TV’s and monitors can result in the release of these toxins which can be harmful to individuals and the environment. Therefore, it is the duty of the owner to ensure the effective and efficient disposal of their waste screens. For free advice on disposing of difficult and hazardous waste please contact our experts.
Recycle with Commercial Recycling
Disposal of your TV’s and monitors couldn’t be easier at our licensed recycling centres. At Commercial Recycling, we have specialist facilities and expert staff allowing us to safely break down and recycle the appropriate parts of the television or monitor.
When you are ready to dispose of your TV or monitors, safely transport them to your nearest licensed recycling centre:
A lot of recycling centres and tips often won’t accept loads of green waste if they contain significantly large bits of trees such as stumps, roots or thick branches. These parts of trees can be problematic to break down for recycling and therefore require more work than other types green waste.
Small bits of trees such as thin branches and leaves are generally classed as garden waste and will be widely accepted.
At Commercial Recycling, we have the facilities to accept all forms of tree waste, including the thick roots and branches. The on-site disposal facilities at our recycling centres in Dorset and Somerset provide users requiring tree root disposal with a fast turnaround and low minimum weight charges.
Green waste recycling
Once tipped, all disposed garden waste is stored together onsite to allow for further processing or transportation to be easily completed.
Our Garden Waste Disposal Sites
The sites that can accommodate green waste, large branches and troublesome tree roots are:
These sites are open to the public, tradespeople and businesses Monday – Friday and Canford Recycling Centre is also open on Saturday mornings. Each facility benefits from hard surfaces throughout to allow use by all vehicle types.
If you are transporting your own tree root waste, simply drive onto the weighbridge and we can calculate how much green waste you are disposing of.
Garden waste site clearance
If you have been undertaking a project that has produced any green or garden waste, we can help with the clearance of garden, shrubbery and tree waste.
We can collect loose or bagged garden waste via our trusted associated company Avon Material Supplies. The extensive fleet of tipper trucks and grab lorries they operate provide customers with the opportunity to choose the optimum vehicle size and type for their project.
