Is it really curtains for your popcorn machine? If it’s faulty, could you find a repair shop? Could you donate it to a charity shop? Or pass it on to someone who wants a pre-loved popping machine? Or could you sell your unwanted popcorn maker?

If your popcorn maker has come to the end, find a bag or box that you can use to store it with all your other old electrical bits and pieces. Then it’s ready for your next trip to the recycling centre – or for collection day if you have one.

Corny but true

Your unloved popcorn machine can have a happy ending

Home popcorn makers are an example of the kitchen “FadTech” that millions of us buy, use once then hardly use again. In fact there are over 18 million kitchen FadTech items gathering dust in UK cupboards.

The valuable steel, aluminium and glass these unused electricals contain could be used in new products such as life-saving defibrillators or children’s play equipment. Give yours a happy ending – find it a new home or make sure it‘s recycled.
