Warning: container parks are closed in Wallonia, but they’re re-opening in Flanders and still accessible in Brussels, but only for urgent matters. We invite you to be careful and observe the security rules in any circumstances, as well as to keep your old appliances and light bulbs at home during this particular period. Above all, we ask you not to throw them in the household waste, in order to preserve the environment. Thank you!

How to properly sort out?

The appliances are sorted into 6 fractions:

  • Refrigerators and freezers that can contain Freon (CFCs) and other harmful gasses/oils;
  • Other large household appliances (washing machines, dishwashers, airing cupboards, stoves, ...);
  • Computer and TV screens that contain a cathode-ray tube;
  • Other appliances (mobile phones, clothing irons, videos, lighting equipment, flat screens, ...);
  • Corona discharge bulbs;
  • Smoke detectors.

Specialised and certified processing companies sanitise (remove hazardous substances), dismantle (separate and sort certain non-harmful substances) and process the appliances in an ecological manner. Then, industry makes new products out of the recycled materials (ferro and non-ferro metals, synthetics, glass and scarce raw materials).
