If you are buying a TV retailers in Great Britain have an obligation under the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment regulations (WEEE) to ensure that customers purchasing similar electrical equipment for the same function can return their old equipment free of charge.

WEEE enacted in January 2007 aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced and to encourage it to be recycled and recovered. There is a good description of the WEEE regulations on the Environment Agency website .

Ask the retailer you are buying your new TV from if they have an in-store take back program or work with a local authority to collect old equipment. As an individual you are under no legal obligation to recycle your old TV but it is the right thing to do. If your retailer does not have an in-store take back they will direct you to a Designated Collection Facility in your area.
