Former Sky customers who are struggling to dispose of their old set-top boxes and broadband routers can now take advantage of a new recycling scheme launched by the company.
The Equipment Recycle & Reward Centre is open to anyone who is no longer an active Sky customer and resident in the UK or Isle of Man and who has equipment eligible for return.
Former customers can head to skyequipmentrecycle.com and select their unused device from the options available, before entering the relevant details and finding out what reward they could get for sending it back to Sky.
Once the return has been booked in, Sky takes care of the postage by sending out a returns label that people can then use to post the products back.
Once received and verified to be in working order, rewards are then sent out in the form of Eden Red Compliments Vouchers, which can can be used at over 130 high street stores and over 20,000 outlets across the UK, as well as a further 450 independent retailers.
The amount sent out will vary depending on the quality and newness of the products returned, but Sky is offering up to £20 for a Sky+HD 2TB Set Top Box, up to £20 for a Sky+HD Set Top Box, up to £10 for a Sky HD Multiscreen Digibox, and up to £10 for a Sky Hub 2.
Currently, existing Sky customers are not able to return equipment they are not using, and are advised to keep hold of any Sky equipment and speak to an advisor about connecting it up for Multiscreen.
According to Sky, it will actively communicate the new offer to anyone identified as a Sky customer who cancelled between 12 and 18 months ago.
