A Bit About Us
We’re a team of individuals who go to great lengths to make sure our customers are the happiest customers out there.
Using cutting edge techniques, we’re committed to extracting as much value as possible from the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment that’s thrown away by UK households every year and when AO sells a new appliance, it’s often our job to take the old one away. We give our AO customers total peace of mind by ensuring their unwanted machines are safely and responsibly recycled - or refurbished for resale as a second-hand product.
We’re experts in recycling, and we work with government, local authorities, businesses and consumers to make sure the UK improves the way it recycles its unwanted electrical items.
