AO recycles 5 million household goods

AO has reported passing a domestic appliances recycling landmark – with five million household goods finding their way into its dedicated AO Recycling facility in five years.

Based in Telford, AO Recycling opened its doors in spring 2017 with the goal of offering domestic appliances recycling services for fridges, washing machines, tumble driers, cookers, dishwashers, and other electricals.

An 80-tonne fridge crunching machine, called Bertha, supports AO with its domestic appliances recycling, with the retailer saying this equipment also collects any harmful gases released from the household goods.

Some of the electricals sent to AO Recycling’s facilities are refurbished to be sold on via trade and outlet shops – and the retailer said more than 200,000 appliances have received a new lease of life so far.
