Like cans, glass and paper, televisions should never end up in the rubbish
Electronic waste - also known as "e-waste" - is the term that describes discarded electrical devices. Recycled glass goes into swimming pool surfaces, safety strips on roads and cycleways and surface & playground finishes at Schools and hospitals.
Harvey Norman is committed to a sustainable future
By providing products and services while respecting and protecting the environment. As an environmentally conscious organisation, we work in unison with our customers, suppliers, governments and the greater community to achieve the best environmental outcomes possible. That includes minimisation of waste, hence our TV recycling scheme. And we realise it's an ongoing exercise, so we're constantly developing, reviewing and improving our environmental practices, procedures and performance.
So now, when you buy a brand-new television from Harvey Norman, we'll get rid of your old one for you
With the peace of mind that you're doing the right thing for the environment. In fact, we give you three easy, eco-friendly options for disposing of your unwanted TV at no cost to you:
- Carrier/delivery driver collection*¹ - When delivering your new television, we'll take away your old one.
- tech2 collection - In conjunction with any TV set-up or wall-mount service, the tech2 technician will remove your old TV after installation of a new one.
- Drop-off points - Harvey Norman stores offer e-waste recycling collection cages where you can bring in and drop off old television sets.
Bear in mind, there's a possibility that the tech2 technician may not be able to remove the old TV at the same time due to its size and weight (like televisions larger than 68cm and rear projection TVs). However, rest assured that tech2 will arrange for it to be picked up and taken away to a recycling point, even if it requires a second, separate visit. Only TVs will be accepted for return to the e-Waste recycling point. You'll need to dispose of all other electronic equipment separately.
When you buy your new television from Harvey Norman, you know you're doing the right thing by the environment.
*1.Old television will only be collected for recycling from your home if delivery of a new television is requested and paid for. Old television must be disconnected and ready for immediate removal upon the delivery of new television. If delivery of new television is not being included, and new television is instead being collected directly from a Harvey Norman store, old television can be brought into the store for recycling.
