Four types of electric appliances (air conditioners, televisions, refrigerators/freezers and washing machines) will not be collected even on days for collecting large-sized garbage. Contact the point of purchase, or the store where you will purchase your new appliance, to arrange for your old electric appliance to be collected. You will need to pay for collection and a recycling charge.
If you cannot arrange for a store to take your appliance away, please contact Nagasaki Denkishōgyō Kumiai (Tel: 0120-028902).
The recycling fee is calculated according to the model and manufacturer of the appliance. Collection fees also vary among stores and municipal governments. For more information contact your local electrical appliance store or municipal office.
