Take it to a Recupel point in Liège!
If you live in Liège, 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 Recupel point near you. Correctly disposing of old appliances was never easier!
It’s free in all Recupel points.
It's easy, because there are plenty of Recupel points in Liège. 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
Recycling more and better, tous ensemble? It’s a breeze, thanks to Recupel! Your old electronics are welcome at the various Recupel points in Liège — at the socio-economic project Electro Sofie, for example, or one of the many recycling parks. Home collection is possible as well. Read on to discover where you can drop off your household electronics.

Did you know …?
When you buy a new device, the store you get it from has to take back your old, similar device. Large chains are even obliged to accept your small devices without you making a purchase.

Why recycle the right way?
Disposing of your old appliances the right way via a Recupel point in Lièges has nothing but advantages.
