Oamaru residents only have until August 18 to dispose of any unwanted televisions in conjunction with the Government’s TV TakeBack programme.

Under the takeback programme, is costs $5 to get rid of any old televisions at the Waitaki Resource Recovery Park. After August 18, the cost will be $25.

So far, between 1550 and 1600 old tvs have been dropped off in Waitaki. The region’s origional quota was 896.
