Where can I return my old dishwasher

As with most other household appliances, you can also return your dishwasher. The parts of the old appliance are processed separately so that any harmful substances are not released into the environment. Often you can return your old appliance for free, making it an attractive option. On this page we have listed the options for you.

Hand in your old dishwasher

Handing in your old appliance is easier than you might think. Old and used household appliances can be handed in at various points:

Hand in old appliance when you buy a new one

Every store is legally obliged to take back old electrical appliances when you buy a new one. This applies not only to small electrical appliances, but also to large ones. So when you buy a new dishwasher, a store is obliged to take your old one.

Officially, stores are not allowed to charge money for this service, but the law only applies to individuals, not businesses.

If you do not buy a new product in the physical store, you may give your old product to the delivery person or leave it at the collection point. If this is not possible, the seller can later schedule a time to pick up your old dishwasher. This must be done within two weeks of the delivery date of your new appliance.

Another option is that the seller sends you a package, which you can use to return the old appliance free of charge. This option is usually used for small electrical appliances, not dishwashers.

A collection point for household appliances

If you do not buy a new dishwasher, you still have the option at some stores to hand in discarded and/or broken appliances. Legally, any store with an area of more than 400 m2 must take in all electrical appliances. The maximum dimensions of those appliances are 25 centimeters for both length, width and thickness.

Other large locations such as supermarkets and garden centers also often have a collection point for electrical appliances and broken energy-efficient lamps. You cannot take your large electrical appliances, such as your old dishwasher, there.

 

The recycling centre of your municipality

If you don’t want to go to a store to hand in your old appliances, you can also go to your municipality. In several places you can find collection points where you can hand in all kinds of appliances. From small appliances to large things like old refrigerators, there is a place for everything. You have to bring them to the location yourself.

If bringing is not an option, the municipality can also come and pick up your old dishwasher. The first option is to dispose of it at the curb, but you can also make an appointment with the collection service.

If your old dishwasher still works, but you still want a new one, you can always take it to the thrift store. In that case, the above options are a waste, because your dishwasher will only be taken apart there to save valuable resources and will not be reused.
