Return & Recycling Service

With the eco-friendly IKEA return service, we take your old mattress, sofa, kitchen or white goods with us when we deliver the new one.

Your old items are recycled or reused to minimise their impact on the environment, in the most environmentally responsible ways. 

White Goods and Kitchen Return Services

Have you bought a new mattress, kitchen, appliance or sofa? On delivery, your old mattress, kitchen or appliances will be taken away and recycled in a responsible manner.

You can only book this service when you buy a new product in-store and have it delivered to your home.

Please note: this service is not available at IKEA Duiven at the moment.

Kitchen Recycling Service

We can disassemble your old kitchen for you, if you choose to have your new kitchen installed by an IKEA installation partner.

The price depends on the total volume of waste. Our partner will give you the exact price during the preparatory visit of the installation service.

Frequently asked questions

When a new appliance is delivered, can I have the old one taken away?

If you buy new kitchen appliances or white goods from IKEA and have them delivered to you, you can also return your old appliances. The new-for-old principle applies here. This means that when an new appliance is delivered, you can return the same type of appliance. There are no extra costs involved.

If you already know before delivery that you would like to return your old appliance, it would be helpful to us if you could let us know this in advance, however, this isn't mandatory.

The transport company will only be able to remove old appliances if they are:

  • clean, dry and completely empty
  • disconnected and dismantled
  • ready to be taken away.

Small electrical appliances, batteries and lamps can also be returned to IKEA. You will find a Wecycle drop-off point at the customer service desk in store.
