Does it still work? To the re-use shop!
If the appliance isn´t broken, the best thing you can do is give it away. That way you´re free of it and you´ve made someone else happy. There are re-use shops throughout Belgium which will clean up your appliances and sell them off at a good price. A green and sympathetic way to recycle!
Even appliances with minor defects are welcome at the re-use shop, which has its own repair service. Don´t hesitate to ask them first whether your things would be welcome.
Doesn’t work any longer? Store, RecyclePoint or re-use centre
You can drop off your old electro-appliance (broken or not) in the store where you buy a new similar appliance. In that case the brand or type don´t make any difference. That´s called the 'take-back obligation'.
For small electrical appliances – and/or lamps – there´s also another option: the RecyclePoint.
Often that’s simply the supermarket or do-it-yourself store in your neighbourhood. Note carefully: they will only accept electrical and electronic appliances whose largest dimension (L/W/H) amounts to a maximum of 25 cm. For example: a mobile phone, an electric shaver, an MP3 player…
Another possibility for properly disposing of defective appliances? Take them to the container park.
