Reusable raw materials

A white goods appliance is made of a lot of materials, 90% of which are reusable. Nowadays, our planet is being drained of its natural resources. That's why it's a sustainable and environmentally-friendly choice to recycle your old fridge, dishwasher, or washing machine. This way, we prevent unnecessary waste and a shortage of raw materials.

An old white goods product contains materials like steel, aluminum, copper, glass, and plastic. These materials can easily be reused. Harmful substances are treated separately, so they don't end up in the environment. That's why you shouldn't just put your old appliances out on the street, but take them to the recycling center for expert recycling. This way, your white goods product gets a second life.

You can recycle your old appliance in different locations. For example, electronic stores or a recycling center. When you buy a new appliance at Coolblue, we take the old product with us. Don't resell your fridge or washing machine if it's older than 7 years. Since they're so old, they use a lot more energy. That's a bad deal for the next owner and for the environment.
