Whitegoodshelp (Andy) posted a topic in Environmental issuesIf you have a working washing machine (or other appliance) that you no longer need and would prefer to find someone who might get some use for it.. Then try this recycle scheme where you can try to find other people who want your unwanted things (no money changes hands). I used it to pass on a couple of bicycles my kids had stopped using when I didn't want to go to the trouble of trying to sell them and the thought of just dumping them was unacceptable. The couple who came and collected them were so grateful it made me feel all warm inside If you have an unwanted washing machine (or anything else for that matter) and you'd rather see someone else utilise it rather than just dump it try Freecycle If you have a broken down washing machine (or other appliance) that you no longer need and would prefer to find someone who might be able to use it for spares or refurbish it.. Then try this site - Find my Recycler is aiming to reduce landfill by compiling a network of repairers to recycle old appliances and other unwanted items by repairing or refurbishing as many as possible. This is a much better solution than simply scrapping appliances for metal, and it's run by a genuine eco warrior If you can't find someone to genuinely recycle your old appliances there you could try to find your local recycling centre by postcode Recyclenow
