White Goods Collection at your Convenience.

by Ewaste on October 4, 2012

Upgrading your kitchen appliances is all part of today’s technology based world. Why stick with a standard fridge when you can have a fridge that makes ice and pours cold water on demand? The problem arises, however, when it comes to disposing of your redundant white goods.

1.) Resell your dishwasher?

You may plan to resell your old appliance and, if you’re lucky, get a bit of money back to go towards purchasing your new one. However, in today’s tech-obsessed society, more and more people are choosing to invest in brand new kitchen appliances as they will often get more life out of them. It’s also increasingly more common for new white goods to come with energy saving guarantee and, by choosing carefully, you can not only save yourself money, but you’re also doing your bit to ease your carbon footprint. Trying to sell your old, money guzzling, energy draining dishwasher can now be nearly as hard as selling your obsolete, analogue TV.

2.) Reuse your fridge?

If your old appliance still works, many people can find it hard to let go. Old fridges are often kept and used purely for drinks or as an overflow fridge. Large families might need the extra space, but most of the time fridges are being kept unnecessarily, draining energy and wasting your hard earned cash – but at least it’s not being dumped in landfill. Getting rid of your second fridge can save the average Australian household up to $210 a year.

Keeping old dishwashers and washing machines don’t really have the same use as there’s little need to do two washes at the same time. In reality, we usually end up hoarding our old kitchen appliances not knowing what to do with them and, unfortunately, they usually end up being taken to the tip and being dumped in landfill.

3.) Recycle your White Goods with 1800Ewaste

Hi There,

I have a 29 inch old TV need to be dump, and it still can be work, so what should do?



Ewaste September 20, 2010 at 9:24 am

Hi Joe,

We can help you recycle your television – we don’t dump any ewaste. It’s probably best to give our office a call on 1800 392 783 and they can let you know if and when we service your area.

I have an old combined oven and cook top that will need to be disposed of and recycled
Please advise if you are collecting in Chatswood area around 6//11/2010.
How much do you charge for collecting it ?



Ewaste October 13, 2010 at 10:15 am

Hi Lesley,

Thanks for your enquiry. Prices can vary depending on location and access, but you’d certainly be looking at under $100. For more information it’s probably best you call our office on 1300 78 22 47 or email us at mail@ewaste.com.au, where one of our sales staff would be more than happy to provide you with an obligation free quote. They can also let you know when we service your area.

We look forward to hearing from you.

I’ve got an old washing machine not in used, are you interested in collecting it? I live in Wollongong, and how much will you charge for it?


Brad Baker January 16, 2011 at 4:20 pm

Do you recycle small kitchen appliances (toasters, blenders, coffee makers, etc) that are from overseas? I moved to Australia from North America several years ago and brought all my small kitchen appliances and have since replaced them all. Shame to fill a landfill with them …

Ewaste February 9, 2011 at 9:51 pm

Hi Brad,
Yes of course – we recycle pretty much anything that plugs in, regardless of where it’s from. It’s probably best to give our office a call on 1800 392 783 or send an email to mail@ewaste.com.au and one of our customer service team will be in touch soon.
Thanks for your enquiry.

Ewaste February 10, 2011 at 3:44 am

Hi Dora,
Unfortunately we don’t service the Wollongong area; it’s probably best to try and contact your local council and see if they have a recycling initiative that would benefit you.
Thanks for your enquiry.

Lorraine Iddon March 3, 2011 at 1:57 pm

Wanting to recycle several items. Where is the nearest place for us to take toasters, coffee machines, irons etc, close to Camden NSW? How about computer keyboards, printers, cables etc?
The concern is that travelling any distance to drop things off would incur using our cars and therefore defeat the purpose of recycling. Also, it’s another added cost, more so if we also have to pay at drop-off to give it away.
It’s important that there be places in all LGA’s where we could take these items, and recyclers could do a monthly collection from these places.
Have you had any contact with councils on this type of solution?

regards, Lorraine

Ewaste March 10, 2011 at 8:04 am

Hi Lorraine,

We recycle all of those items and offer a collection service so that you don’t have to worry about driving to a drop off point. It’s probably best to give our office a call on 1800 78 22 47 (freetoll) to find out if/when we service your area. We are always trying to encourage local councils to offer electronic waste collections for their residents and have worked in partnership with several councils in the past towards setting up a regular ewaste collection. With a little pressure, we hope that more councils will take the same initiative.

Thanks for your enquiry

HI there,

I have an old (1960′s) kelvinator fridge that I want to reuse in my garden and was just wondering if you know of anyone who might be able to remover the freon from it before I bury it in the ground?


Ewaste September 21, 2011 at 12:26 am

Hi Kyle,

Unfortunately we destroy and recycle all of the electronic waste we collect so don’t have any contacts with companies that would be able to remove the freon only.

All the best,

Joost October 10, 2011 at 6:14 pm

what would be the cost to remove a dishwasher, located in Claremont?

David Marks October 21, 2011 at 11:56 am

Jean Beban November 29, 2011 at 10:01 am

I have an old fridge that I want to get rid of, it is in working order but a little rusty from storing in the garage. Is there someone that collects from north Canberra area and if so what do I do to arrange this. We are moving house next weekend and would like it gone before then if possible
Thanks Jean

Ewaste December 7, 2011 at 2:51 am

Hi Antony,

We don’t collect free of charge as our fees cover the cost of recycling, as well as the cost of collection. Why not give our office a call on 1800 392 783 (free toll) where one of our customer service team can offer you an obligation free quote.

Thanks for your enquiry.

Ewaste December 7, 2011 at 2:54 am

Hi Jean,

Unfortunately we don’t service your area at the moment. It may be worth giving our office a call on 1800 392 783 (Free toll) as the may be able to offer you a suggestion. Alternatively, why not contact your local council?

Thanks for your enquiry.

Tee January 6, 2012 at 1:31 pm

i have 2 front loader washing machines, we could fix them, but financially unable to. how much cash could i get for these 2 machine if i give i to cash for scraps or something?

Ewaste January 23, 2012 at 7:26 am

Hi there,

Unfortunately we don’t buy electronic waste from you; correctly recycling electronic waste is actually a costly business as it’s extremely hazardous and complicated. Be wary of anyone who offers to buy electronic waste from you, as they will usually be in the business of reselling or exporting. If you would like more information on the services we offer, feel free to call our sales office on 1800 392 783 (free toll).


Aly February 5, 2013 at 10:48 am

Hi there, I have an old kelvinator fridge that was given to me in bad condition. It supposedly still work but is a little beat up.
What am I able to do with this?

1800ewaste February 5, 2013 at 1:29 pm

HI Aly

You have a few options, firstly see if you can sell or give it away alternatively it might be time to retire the fridge and recycle it. 1800ewaste can do this for you so call the office on 1800392783 or email orders@ewaste.com.au to arrange a collection. Thanks
