How We Work

You leave it out,

we pick it up

When you book in, we'll provide you with an exact pick up date and two-hour time frame. Simply leave your items outside before your appointment time with a note "for Arnies" and we'll pick it up.

Keep in mind

  • All appliances must be cleaned of all food, dirt and mould (they are a bio-hazard and we can't take them for health reasons).

  • All computers, phones and tablets can be restored or reset to wipe your data if you can turn them on. We do erase hard drives. 

  • Your items are being reused, so they need to be cleaned, particularly of any food or mould.  

  • We do not go into homes and will not unhook, dismantle, clean or remove items from inside. 

  • We also collect cables, remotes, charges, old ipods, stereos, speakers and other devices. Simply leave them out in a box or bag with your other items.

Please ensure you want to get rid of whatever you are putting out. This includes the boxes or bags you put your stuff in. We can't return them or guarantee they won't be damaged or broken once your stuff is picked up.

We find a use for your stuff locally or overseas

Once we've picked up your stuff, we take it back to our warehouse where it's sorted into what's usable as is, what's to be used for parts or becomes scrap. Whether it works or not, we find ways to keep it out of landfill.


We do

  • Source local avenues with people who either collect or refurbish appliances and electronics.

  • Work with a community in Lagos, Nigeria who use the appliances and parts to set up orphaned young men in their own businesses  selling electronics and appliances. 

  • Take what can't be used in any way to scrap.


We don't

  • Repair or sell appliances directly to the public. We are not licensed electricians, and so can't guarantee the safety of any appliance.

  • Break down, scrap or repurpose any items. 

  • Take styrofoam or other packing materials. We can't recycle or use them.

  • Accept dirty appliances full of food, debris or mould. This includes vacuum cleaners, fridges and microwaves. They need to be cleaned first or we will leave them. Dirty appliances are a health risk to our team.
