ILM has a retail outlet from which it sells refurbished electrical appliances at its Head Office in Alness.
Our aim is to maximise the number of units that can be refurbished for reuse and sale. An additional benefit from this operation is that ILM provides work experience opportunities for local people.
Also at our site in Alness, ILM has:
- bulk storage and transfer facilities
- workshops for the repair and re-use of appliances
- facilities for dismantling items to send elsewhere for further reprocessing
- partnerships with specialist organisations to re-process particular items, such as those containing precious metals or hazardous waste
Where does the waste equipment come from?
We collect waste appliances from:
- local household waste recycling centres
- business to business waste collection services
- local retailers
