The price will drop and access to collection sites will increase for people wanting to get rid of unwanted televisions.

The Dunedin City Council has taken advantage of new Ministry for the Environment funding to provide a $5 recycling fee, down from $25.

New collection sites have also been added.

The recycling of old televisions is being enhanced as the countdown to the 28th of April digital switchover continues.

The former Jacko's wood yard in Thomas Burns Street will be open for TV recycling for five days from this Thursday.

The council is also supporting a University of Otago collection site in the car park beside the former Wickliffe Press building this weekend.
