How to Prepare for Your Drop Off


What You Need to Do

  • Clean any items of all dirt, food, and mould, especially vacuum cleaners, and microwaves.

  • Restore or reset any computers (and unlock them in the cloud), phones and tablets to wipe your data. 

  • Make sure you do not want anything you leave with us. This includes any boxes or bags. We can't return anything we take, nor can we guarantee damage or breakage once your stuff is picked up.

  • To drop off small items, place them in a box or bag labeled "For Arnies Recon" and take them to the reception in the front of the building. 

  • To drop off large appliances (washing machines, dishwashers, air conditioners, dryers) drive through the large double-door entrance to the right of the building to the back. You can leave them next to the large recycling skip.
