Why is a TV hazardous waste?

Whether you’re a business or household in Wetherby, you still have a legal obligation to ensure that any hazardous waste, such as TVs, are disposed of safely and legally.

Waste is considered ‘hazardous’ under the government’s environmental legislation when it contains substances or has properties that will make it harmful to human health or to the environment. However, this does not necessarily mean that it is an immediate risk to human health, although some waste can be.

TVs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste as they contain harmful materials such as Mercury, Beryllium and Cadmium. All of these heavy metals are toxic and therefore could contaminate the land and wildlife as well as being harmful to humans.e
