How to prepare


Step 1

Make sure your appliance is disconnected from any water, gas or mains supplies. Fridge freezers need to be completely defrosted with any water, takeaways or milk cartons emptied out. If we’re picking up a tumble dryer, washing machine or dishwasher, don’t forget to unload that too.


Step 2

We can collect your appliance from any room inside your home, so there’s no need to move it to the front door before we arrive. Once we’ve got it, we’ll take it to our state-of-the-art recycling facility in Telford to be sorted responsibly – saving you a trip to the tip.





Please note:

– Unfortunately, if your old appliance isn’t ready for collection, we will be unable to take it and will offer you a refund for the service.

– This service is only currently available online, when purchasing an item from ElekDirect.

– We can only collect like for like product types. For example, if you’ve purchased a fridge, we can only collect your old one and not anything else.
