Coffeemakers, blenders, toasters, mixers and more – can be recycled.
Most small appliances are mainly composed of metal, like steel. They have useful materials that are easy to recycle — and shouldn’t end up in the landfill.
Rather than letting these items pile up in a landfill, recycle them safely.
We recycle all types of residential appliances, from large appliances such as fridges and stoves to the smaller hand held appliances and power tools.
Why Recycling Small Appliances is Important
Cool Small Appliance Recycling Facts:
- About 75 percent of the weight of the average appliance comes from steel (the most recycled material). Home appliances account for 10 percent of steel recycled each year.
- Microwaves have computer chips in them that contain valuable metals like gold. And the wire in electronics’ power cords is made of coated copper — another valuable material.
