    If you are replacing a broken appliance, the retailer supplying your new appliance should offer you a take back service. Alternatively you can take your broken appliances to your nearest recycling site.

    Fridges and freezers, televisions and computer monitors should be put in the appropriate designated storage area. Ask the site staff if you are not sure where these are.

    All other appliances can be put in the electronic equipment container.  Materials such as plastics and metals are recycled into new products.

    Please do not pour engine oil down the drain.
     
    To recycle your engine oil, please take it to your nearest reycling site and put it in the used engine oil container. It will be used to create bio-diesel or as a fuel in an energy from waste facility.
