Hotel guest room TVs are typically retired every five or six years. But what do you do with your old TVs?
The solution is simple. Your LG account manager can coordinate liquidation services through our certified hospitality partners that specialize in installing new and liquidating old televisions. These nationwide companies will uninstall the TVs, remove them from the property, recycle them properly and install the new TVs. They can also install a Pro:Centric® management server if needed.
LG recently did this for the Hilton Newark Airport hotel in New Jersey. It was the pilot for Hilton’s nationwide corporate recycling program to responsibly dispose of older hotel TVs while upgrading to innovative new energy-efficient models to heighten the in-room guest experience and reduce energy costs. The Hilton Newark Airport had nearly 400 guest room TVs they wanted to replace. Hilton needed to ﬁnd partners that would help facilitate the recycling of the existing sets and retroﬁt new sets, all during hotel occupancy. So they turned to LG, the industry leader in hospitality TVs.
Hilton and LG worked with Global Sustainability Solutions (GSS) from Manassas, VA, on the project. GSS is a woman-owned business that specializes in sustainable and recycling solutions for the hospitality market segment by diverting end-of-life product from landfills.
The Hilton Newark Airport replaced their older 32-inch sets with new 43-inch ENERGY STAR® certified LG flat screen TVs that deliver a more engaging guest experience. GSS also oversaw the installation of 49-inch LG hospitality TVs in the Hilton’s suites. The project was completed in just four days’ time – two days earlier than anticipated, minimizing impact on guests. Due to the pilot’s success, LG and Hilton are extending the program into 2018 with plans to replace old sets with LG 4K Ultra HD hospitality TVs, while continuing their shared commitment to responsible electronics recycling.
