Includes microwaves, blenders, coffee pots, crock pots, mixers, irons, tea kettles, toasters, toaster ovens, humidifiers, and other similar appliances.
Appliances that refrigerate (fridges, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifers) contain hazardous chemicals, so they must be recycled as a large appliance.
Mostly-Plastic Small Appliances: There are only a few local options for recycling small, mostly-plastic appliances. Best Buy accept stick vaccuums, fans, robot vacuums, and upright/canister vacuums for recycling. Bainbridge Island Transfer Station accepts "anything with a cord" for recycling (fees may apply). If you cannot recycle mostly-plastic small appliances, they are safe to put in the trash.
Mostly-Metal Small Appliances: If your small appliance is mostly metal, you can recycle it in the scrap metal containers at Olympic View Transfer Station or Silverdale Recycling and Garbage Facility. Please remove non-metal parts and pieces before putting it in the scrap metal container.
The private metal recyclers listed below may also accept your small metal appliance. Contact them directly to inquire.
Give away, sell, or donate good condition items. Learn more about donating good condition items.
It is safe to put small broken appliance (without refrigeration) in the garbage. Remove and recycle batteries first.
