Need that old appliance taking away? Don’t struggle shifting it yourself with a trip to the tip or worse, leaving it outside to drown in the rain.

Out with the old...

Sometimes in life you need to upgrade to a newer model. That’s fine, but let’s treat your trusty old timer with a bit of respect and ensure there aren’t any painful goodbyes. When you’re ordering a new appliance, simply select our Remove & Recycle service in the basket and we’ll take your old one away when we deliver the new one. There’s a few things you can do to help us all avoid any dramas:

  • Your existing product will need to be disconnected if we’re taking it away. We can do this for you if you like. Simply add our disconnection service when you’re checking out. See our disconnection page for more info.
  • If we’re collecting your old cooling appliance, we won’t be able to take it unless it’s been defrosted and is free from any water.

...and in with the new

So, we’ve sorted the disposal of your old appliance. Did you know we can get the new one fitted in for you too? To make things super easy for you on delivery day, simply add our Installation and Remove & Recycle services in the basket and we’ll take care of the lot when we arrive.

If you’re getting a new cooking appliance, an integrated appliance or a TV installed, we’ll disconnect the old one for you as part of the service. If it’s any other product, you’ll need to make sure it’s disconnected before we come and dispose of it. Or, if you’d prefer us to take care of it for you, just add our disconnection service to the basket. If we’re disposing of your cooling product, it’ll need to be defrosted and clear of any water.

Meet Bertha

We take our responsibilities seriously at AO. Millions of fridges are thrown away every year, and some contain harmful gases and oils that can damage the environment. That’s why we invested in our own state-of-the-art recycling plant in Telford. At the heart of it all is Bertha, our expert in all things recycling. She can process more items than anywhere in the country, making AO Recycling the most advanced site of its kind in the UK. If you want to know more about how we responsibly recycle your appliances, check out our video. Or if you want to know more about Bertha herself, click here.

WEEE directive

We're part of the government's WEEE directive (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment). So, if you select our Disposal service in the basket, we'll make sure your old product is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way and won’t find its way to a landfill. 100% of the cost of this service relates to safely transporting the product to our recycling plant. Under the WEEE regulations, recycling costs are borne by the product manufacturer.
