Recycled to the Highest Environmental Standards
Our approved recycling partners ensure that those appliances that cannot be reused, are recycling to the highest environmental standards. The task of recycling means that item such as fridges and washing machines are put into a big recycling plant and turned into material crumbs, these are known as recyclates.
Once the crumbs fall out of the recycling blender, they are separated using magnets, water and air; so that they produce clean piles of material. From here on in, materials can be bagged and supplied back to manufacturers, so that they can go into making new appliances.
We are always talking to our recycling suppliers to ensure that they are recovering as much material as possible and that materials are of the highest quality.
As part of our commitment to the environment and to sustainability, our complete UK operation is now carbon neutral.
