Recycling Your Old Appliance
When delivering your new appliance we can take the old one away for just £20 and recycle it on your behalf. Simply tick the Recycle box in the shopping basket and make sure it’s disconnected and out of position when we get there.
If you have any piece of electrical equipment you want to recycle, you can either:
- Bring your old product into any of our Appliance World stores
- We can collect and recycle your domestic appliance when you have your new product delivered.
What we'd ask you to do...
If you’ve purchased one of our installation services, we’ll disconnect your old domestic appliance for you as part of the service.
If you haven’t opted for an installation service, no problem, we just ask that you make sure you’ve safely disconnected your old appliance before we arrive (built-in/integrated appliances should be disconnected and completely removed from their housing).
Please use a qualified individual where required – please note gas and dual fuel cookers should be disconnected and emptied, if applicable, by Gas Safe Register approved engineers.
We certainly do not want to damage your floor covering during collection so in some circumstances we are not able to disconnect old products. This would be the case for the following:
- Appliances that are unable to be moved
Look for the logo
All new electrical and electronic equipment we sell can be recycled! You can tell because our products include a ‘crossed out wheeled bin symbol’ like this.
Even if your old product doesn’t have the ‘crossed out wheeled bin’ symbol, the good news is we’ll gladly accept and recycle your old electrical and electronic equipment to the best of our ability.
Benefits of Recycling
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
