Small Appliances / Power Tools


Instead of leaving tossing your worn out toaster in your garbage can or dragging your burnt out vacuum to the curb, bring them to us to recycle! We accept a range of small appliances for recycling – once these items are broken apart and shredded they can be made into something new. We offer small appliance recycling at our locations in Campbell River, Esquimalt, South Cowichan and Duncan. Before bringing your small appliances in, please ensure they are clean and free from any food or liquid residue.

Please refer to our list of accepted small appliances and note that we cannot accept appliances that are not powered by electricity or batteries, large appliances, appliances used for commercial or industrial use, built-in appliances or appliances with refrigerant such as air conditioners, refrigerators and dehumidifiers. If you are unsure if your appliance is eligible for recycling, please feel free to give us a call! By recycling old small appliances you are helping recover valuable materials and reducing waste in our landfills!

We accept more than 300 small electrical appliances, ranging in size from electric toothbrushes to countertop microwave ovens. Products are divided into categories including kitchen countertop, time measurement, weight measurement, garment care, air treatment, floor care and personal care. The program recycles small appliances designed for residential use only and powered by batteries or plugged into 12 Volt or 120 Volt power.

See below for a detailed list on the types of small appliances and power tools that we can accept.
