Can white goods be recycled?

YES, white goods such as cookers, freezers, washing machine etc will be accepted by most recycling centres.

As up-dated versions of such items are constantly produced there tends to be a lot of waste generated electrical items also usually contain large amounts of metals or toxic gases contributing to ozone depletion.

How can I help?

  • Before buying your new appliance, see if the store can collect your old one and transport it to a local recycling centre, specializing in WEEE recycling management.
  • See if you can do a part exchange on your electrical appliance.
  • Look through the DTI directory to search for companies that may collect your unwanted appliances.
