    Shops to collect old gadgets free from next month - RTHK
    From August 1, when you get a new TV, washing machine or computer, the shops will required to take the old ones back for free.

    The Environmental Protection Department said some 1,110 shops have so far promised to collect the old items. Officials said under most circumstances, consumers can have their old products removed on the same day the new one is delivered.

    Four companies were fined last week for failing to provide the statutory free removal service for waste electrical and electronic equipment, with some even accused of charging people illegally.
    ...the government needs to do more to educate people about the scheme, which came into effect last August.
