Here at Argos we don't just recycle old jokes - we also recycle old products. So when your new product is delivered, we’ll take away your old item to be recycled, along with any excess packaging. Simple.
Not only will we take it away for you, we’ll install it too – we have qualified tradespeople on standby to help get you up and running.
If it’s an integrated appliance, or any type of cooker, we’ll also disconnect your old appliance as part of the service.
After you’ve placed your order, you’ll get a call within 48hrs to book a delivery/ installation date that suits you. On your selected day, you’ll receive a text message to confirm the four-hour window when the installation team arrive. We’ll call again to let you know when we’re actually en-route to your property.
If you select our ‘recycling only’ service, or your appliance is freestanding, you must disconnect, defrost and empty your old appliance of any water first. If this isn't done, we simply won't be able to collect it.
For integrated appliances, and all types of cookers, we’ll disconnect your old one as part of the installation service.
If you opt for installation, our installation team will deliver and install your new product all in one visit.
Our recycling and installation services are available for selected large appliances, mattresses and postcodes. Just keep an eye out for any recycling and installation options on the page of your chosen item.
We have a full price listing of our recycling and installation services here.
The only kitchen appliance we can’t collect is American fridge-freezers.
If you’ve selected the product installation service, don’t worry, you’re in safe hands. However, there is a tiny bit of groundwork you need to do beforehand...
Ensure there is a suitable power point within 1m of where you want the product to be installed.
Create clear access to the area you want your new appliance installed and, especially if stairs are involved, make sure that there is room to manoeuvre.
Check that the appliance will fit into the required space. There needs to be room at the back and either side of the cooker to allow for ventilation.
Clear the environment near where your appliance will be installed. For cookers specifically, there can be no electric sockets or flammable items in the ‘splashback’ area directly above where the cooker will be installed (see following diagram for more details).

Recycling and installation only (not disconnection of old appliance)
We can recycle and install any of the products listed below, removing any excess packaging in the process. However, for old freestanding appliances that involve some kind of water, we’ll need you to disconnect and empty them of water before we can take them away for recycling (yes, including defrosting if it’s a freezer!).

We’ll send you a green recycling bag via 1st class post. Then all you need to do is bag-up your mattress before it’s collected. Unless you’re getting the new one delivered the very next day – then our delivery drivers will bring the bags to you. To purchase mattress recycling, you can search ‘mattress recycling’ in the main search bar. Unfortunately, mattress recycling isn't available for rolled mattresses (fulfilled by our Small Item Delivery Service).
