How to Prepare for Recycling with Whirl

There are a few things that help the recycling process...


Check What We Take


Please check our list to make sure we can recycle your items. If you only have one item, have a look around in your bottom drawers or cupboards.


Remove Soft Plastics


Remove all plastic bags and styrofoam packaging. We receive large volumes and are not plastic recyclers. We then have to find someone who does.


Wipe Your Items


We process your electronics by hand. Wiping down your items removes dust, dirt and cobwebs to keep toxins out of our lungs and off our clothes.

Box Only in Cardboard


Box all items in cardboard only. Our facilities are too rough on plastic or other types of boxes. No plastic or other types of bags either please. 


Unlock from the Cloud


We destroy all data on all devices. If you remove your phone or tablet from your cloud account, then reset it, it can be reused safely. Can't do this?  That's fine too. It can be used for parts.


Leave on Your Doorstep


To ensure your items aren't taken, leave them on your property, protected from rain, on your front doorstep, with a note, "for Lisa & Adrian".
