Disposal of old appliances


Miele stands by making high quality products which typically last longer thereby minimising the contribution to waste of end of life appliances.

In accordance with the WEEE Ireland Regulations, when you buy a new domestic appliance (including vacuum cleaners) direct from Miele, we will remove your old appliance*, and ensure that it is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way, all free of charge.

Vacuum cleaners are taken back on a one-for-one, like-for-like basis free of charge at the time of delivery should the customer request it or in store.

* Selected appliances only. Please contact Miele for further information.

Waste batteries are taken back in store on a one-for-zero basis (i.e no purchase required) as long as they are of equivalent type to that sold by us.

WEEE and waste batteries can also be returned to your local civic amenity site free of charge.

The following link will show you how to find the civic amenity site closest to you where you can recycle your WEEE, batteries and light bulbs, https://www.weeeireland.ie/household-recycling/where-can-i-recycle/

Never put WEEE, batteries or light bulbs in any of your bins.

About WEEE Ireland

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulation ensures that  electrical and electronic waste is collected and recycled in an environmentally responsible manner.

The price you pay for the products may include a contribution to a Producer Recycling Fund (PRF) which helps to fund the cost of the collection and recycling of electrical equipment waste . These contributions are set by an independent body, known as the 'WEEE Register' Society Ltd.

Electrical equipment waste must never be placed in your household wheelie bin. This is taken back free of charge at electrical outlets on a one-for-one like-for-like basis. Local authority civic amenity facilities also take back electrical equipment waste free of charge.
