Unlike other companies we'll take away your old product for free recycling, along with any packaging, when we deliver your new one. This applies to large kitchen appliances and catering equipment". What’s more, if you've chosen to have your new product installed by us, we’ll disconnect it too.
You can also bring any unwanted electrical item into our shop for free recycling, even if you haven’t bought it from us.
Free Recycling on all products
We'll take your old appliance away for free when we deliver, plus any packaging.
Bring any electrical product into a store and we’ll take it off your hands
Please note: If your product is being delivered directly by the manufacturer, free recycling is available for replacement products only; i.e. an old fridge freezer will be taken away if you’re having a new fridge freezer delivered.
What we'd ask you to do
Large appliances and catering equipment delivered by North London Appliances
If you’re having your new product delivered, we just ask that you make sure your old product has been safely disconnected and is in a fit state to take away before we arrive. If you've purchased a North London Appliances installation service, we’ll also disconnect your old product for you.
- Built-in / integrated appliances should be disconnected and completely removed from their housing, and refrigeration appliances should be fully defrosted and free of water.
- Please note: Gas and dual fuel cookers should be disconnected by Gas Safe Registered engineers.
We certainly do not want to damage your property during collection, so in some circumstances we are not able to disconnect old appliances. Below are some examples of why we would not be able to disconnect:
- Your old appliance is hard wired into a fused spur
- Your old appliance has tap connections that have seized up
- Your old appliance cannot be moved
All other products
Before bringing your unwanted electrical items into store for recycling, please make sure the product is in a presentable condition and if your product has any personal data (i.e. PC, Laptop, Mobile Phone, etc.), please ensure that the data has been deleted prior to us receiving it, as we will not carry out any data removal.
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 products helps save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
