By appliances, we mean all household, imaging and sound equipment. So all household appliances (small and large) that work on batteries, electricity or gas fall within the category of white and brown goods. Examples include a washing machine, gas stove, television or mobile phone. By submitting them separately, devices can often be repaired and (partially) reused.
How is the waste collected?
You can bring the devices to the waste recycling points, hand it in at shops where you buy a similar product or where storage bins are for (small) electrical appliances.
n Eindhoven you can use the Cure pick-up service against payment. Please contact Cure Customer Service for further details.
- Turn in devices separately from other waste
- Between 70% and 90% of the devices can be recycled
- Some stores have collection boxes for (small) electrical appliances
- Remove lamps from tanning beds, oil from deep fryers, and batteries from other electrical appliances.
We divide the appliances category into 3 types:
Small appliances include all small household appliances that operate on batteries or power. For example, a mobile phone, electric toothbrush or hand blender.
Cables such as chargers and extension cords are also considered small electrical appliances and may therefore be disposed of with this category.
For large appliances, consider, for example, large household and sound equipment, such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, washing machines, dishwashers, dryers, gas stoves, etc.
Flat screens of, for example, televisions or computers fall within this category of white and brown goods.
