How To Dispose of Your Washing Machine

How to Dispose of a Washing Machine Responsibly

When your washer stops working, don’t let it spin out of control. It is important to dispose of an old washing machine legally.

How To Dispose of Your Washing Machine

Washing machines are a part of our everyday life and so it can be a stressful situation when yours stops working. One course of action is to get the washing machine repaired; it might be cheaper to get it fixed than to fork out for a brand new one. The best option is to ask a professional to assess and repair the washing machine. If it is time for replacement, here are some suggestions for what to do with an old one.

Donate it to Charity

Donating an unwanted washing machine to a charity will be very much appreciated by someone who would not be able to have such an item otherwise. Not only will it protect the environment by preventing the washing machine from going to landfills, but it helps someone in need.

Recycle it

Recycling a washer is a great option instead of simply disposing of it. Over 75% of all the waste electrical goods in the United Kingdom end up being put in landfills, which causes a huge amount of damage to the environment by contributing to soil and water contamination.

If you have a big enough vehicle, you can drive your washing machine to your closest local authority recycling centre to be placed into their waste electrical goods container.

If you do not have a safe way to remove your washer and take it to a recycling centre, then you can often book a collection through your local council.
