Need to get rid of unused VM Tivo Box

I have an old, unused VM Tivo Box I'd like to get rid of, either by returning to VM or recycling.

How can I best achieve this, please?

Re: Need to get rid of unused VM Tivo Box

Could text 07533051809 with message saying you would like to return TiVo. Might get a free post return packaging. 

Collection agents were about to start work when the lockdown begun.

It is virgin media's property. Text them ask you if it's ok to recycle.

Re: Need to get rid of unused VM Tivo Box

According to this link:

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-return-or-recycle-equipment 

the Tivo box is NOT shown as equipment that has to be RETURNED.

So I assume I can use the above link to RECYCLE it instead?

Re: Need to get rid of unused VM Tivo Box

With recycling centres currently shut that route isn't an option.  Suggest you just stick it in a cupboard until some sort of normality returns.
