Recycling Appliances in BC
Out with the old and in with the new, what appliances are you ready to part with?
At the end of the year, many BC residents take stock of what they have in their homes and decide to let a few of their old kitchen gadgets or appliances go. This can be to make room for gifts they’re hoping to receive this holiday season or just to finally clear up that counter space so they can cook and bake to their heart’s content.
Are you ready to recycle some of your old appliances?
You may be surprised at what we can take off your hand at absolutely no cost to you! If your appliances are no longer what you need but could still be used by another family, we suggest finding a local charity to donate them to. Different charities accept different items, please be sure to check in advance before dropping off large appliances.

Recycling Large Appliances
Large appliance recycling includes residential fridges, freezers, washers, dryers, oven ranges, and dishwashers. We accept these large appliances free of charge.
For commercial customers, we accept walk-in coolers, walk-in fridges, and commercial air conditioners. Due to the size and labour required to process these commercial items, we charge a nominal fee of $25 for the recycling of each of these large appliances.
Large appliances can be recycled at four of our BC recycling depots, Vancouver, Richmond, Abbotsford, and Cloverdale. We appreciate your understanding, as we cannot process large appliance recycling at any of our other depots.
