Southerners are being reminded to recycle unwanted television sets before the TV Takeback programme ends in four weeks.

Under the scheme, the cost to recycle unwanted televisions is subsidised by the Government until August 21 in the South Island.

Since the programme started in March, 414 sets have been collected in the Southland district, while 526 have been collected in Gore.

Ministry for the Environment operations manager Glenn Wigley said the Southland district figure was less than half its quota, while Gore had reached 75 per cent. People could still recycle their televisions after the August 21 cutoff but would not be eligible for the subsidy.

Information on collection sites and retailers involved in the programme can be found at tvtakeback.govt.nz.
