Dear Health and Safety Executive,
I'm trying to find out how many household appliances are disposed of each year in the UK.
Specifically, I'm looking at:
- Washing machines
- Coffee machines
- Boilers (if possible)
I'd like to know total numbers and total weight if possible, please.
I'd also like to know what happens to them afterwards; I understand most of it can be recycled, so what does it become?
