If you’re buying a new gas cooker, oven or hob, we can help you safely recycle your old gas appliances  Did you know most gas cookers, hobs and even BBQs have a starter button either powered by mains electricity or battery which means Recycle IT can accept these type of appliances alongside all types of electrical items used in homes, gardens and small offices.

Why Recycle?

Unwanted appliances including items used in kitchens are one of Ireland’s fastest-growing types of waste. As you know many items can be repaired or reused while others simply need to be recycled. All options save natural resources and the environment so please do what is best for you.

If you do not recycle your appliance properly they tend to end up in landfills or illegally dumped where hazardous substances can leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife, plant life and human health. If you are removing a gas cooker remember to do so safely.
