Recycling or donating an old, unused air fryer is as simple and rewarding as the meals it was designed to cook.
Find a box or bag that you can use to stash all your old electrical bits and pieces until you next visit the recycling centre – or until collection day if you have one.
Pick the option that suits you
Thousands of shops across the UK will now recycle your old air fryer when you buy a new one from them. Some retailers take back all old electricals for recycling or refurbishment, even if you’re not buying something new. #zerowaste
Some councils collect electricals for recycling – either with your regular waste collection or by special arrangement. Contact your council or check their website to find out. Use our recycling locator.
All household waste and recycling centres have drop-off points for electricals. Some also have an area for items that can be refurbished to be passed on – in case your not-fully-broken air fryer could go to a new cook.
Some supermarkets, car parks and designated roadside areas have electrical recycling drop-off points, or ‘bring banks’. Be sure to check if your nearest can take larger items like air fryers.
Did you know?
Around 40% of UK households have an air fryer – but nearly half a million of the devices are sitting idle.
