Small Household Appliances

Small household appliances such as toasters, kettles, hair dryers, and vacuum cleaners are an integral part of our daily routines, bringing convenience and efficiency to our lives. However, when these appliances become obsolete, broken, or are replaced by newer models, they often end up in landfills, contributing to environmental pollution. Southern Electrical Recycling LTD offers a sustainable, responsible solution for disposing of these small appliances through our comprehensive recycling services.

Why Recycle your Small Household Appliances with us?

  • Reduced Hazardous Waste: Many small appliances contain hazardous materials that can pose risks to the environment and human health if improperly disposed.
  • Conservation of Natural Resources: By recycling small appliances, we can reuse valuable materials like plastic, metal, and glass, reducing the need to extract and process new raw materials.
  • Energy Savings: The production of new materials and products requires significant energy. Recycling small appliances helps save energy as less is needed to process recycled materials compared to new ones.
  • Economic Development: Recycling industries can stimulate economic growth by creating local employment opportunities. It also promotes a circular economy, where resources are kept in use for as long as possible.
  • Reduction in Landfill Space: Small appliances might be small in size, but they can accumulate and take up significant space in landfills. Recycling these items means less waste is sent to landfills, preserving them for non-recyclable waste.

Our Small Appliance Recycling Process

Our recycling process begins when you reach out to us for the disposal of your small household appliances. We arrange a suitable time for collection, making the process easy and convenient for you. Upon collection, the appliances are brought to our facility for a thorough inspection and categorisation. We separate recyclable materials from non-recyclable components, taking great care to dispose of any hazardous substances correctly.

Metal parts, such as steel and copper, are segregated and prepared for recycling, while plastic parts are also separated and sent to dedicated recycling facilities. Our team ensures that all the processes are carried out following environmental regulations and safety guidelines.



Once the recycling process is complete, we provide a comprehensive report detailing what was recycled. This ensures transparency and allows you to see the impact of your decision to recycle.

Ready for the Future

Once the materials have been recycled, they are ready to be used in the manufacture of new products. This circular economy approach reduces the need for raw material extraction, promoting a greener future.

Partner with Us for a Sustainable Future

Every small appliance that we recycle contributes to a reduction in landfill waste, a decrease in the need for raw material extraction, and a significant saving in energy. Your decision to recycle contributes significantly to these outcomes, driving us towards a more sustainable future.
