AO recycles five million appliances in five years

Online electricals retailer AO has reached the milestone of recycling over five million household appliances since it first opened its recycling facility five years ago.

The Telford site launched in the spring 2017 with the aim of safely recycling large domestic appliances, including fridges, washing machines, tumble driers, cookers and dishwashers.

In a recent survey by AO, a third of UK consumers admitted to having at least one washing machine they no longer use, with a 9% revealing they have three still in their home. In addition, almost eight out of ten people said they would recycle their appliances if  there was an easy way to do so via collection services.

Robert Sant, managing director of AO Recycling, said: “We’re so pleased to have saved a huge five million appliances from potentially being fly-tipped. While AO Recycling is best known for its innovative fridge recycling facilities, we also tackle a range of large appliances that arrive onsite. Our research shows that there is a growing desire for a simple collection service for our unwanted appliances and we hope to continue recycling as many appliances as possible via our recycling services.”
