Broken appliance?
Take it to a Recupel point in Brussels!


If you live in Brussels, properly disposing of old appliances can seem difficult. Getting to a recycling centre, for example, is not easy if you don’t have a car. And while simply leaving your stuff on the street may seem like a good solution because it tends to magically disappear, doing so can be harmful to the environment and society. Old electrical appliances must be recycled correctly to minimize pollution and to enable the reuse of as many parts as possible.


Fortunately, there is always a Brussels Recupel point near you. Correctly disposing of old appliances was never easier!


Find a Recupel point in Brussels


It’s free in all Recupel points.

Easy !

It's easy, because there are plenty of Recupel points in Brussels. You can find them at supermarkets, electrical shops, do-it-yourself stores and recycling parks, for example.

Good for the planet

Is your appliance still working? Give it a second life by donating it to someone, or drop it off at your local thrift store.


The streets are no place for electronic waste: you don’t know where they will wind up. If taken to a landfill, for example, they will end up polluting the soil for hundreds of years.

Less waste, clean city: give your old appliances a second life

Working appliances that you no longer need can be brought to the Brussels Recupel points at Spullenhulp, FEBRAP, or La Poudrière. Your small electronics are also welcome at the Salvation Army.

Recupel Brussels: why recycle the right way?

    • Good for both people and planet: the risk of harmful substances in the air and soil is reduced.
