Can I follow the status of my Iron Recycling Service return?

You can track your return during its journey to us with the Royal Mail. Once your return has arrived at our Recycling Centre, due to the volume of returns, we are unable to provide you with the recycling status on your individual item.

How are my straightening Irons recycled?

Once your Straightening Irons have been received at our Recycling Centre, they will either be reused, repurposed or recycled. If your old Iron has reached End of Life (EOL), our waste management partners will collect and recycle this product to save it from going to landfill. 

EOL irons: Your irons will be collected from our recycling hub at CLOUD NINE HQ by our waste management partners. They are then taken back to their facility, where all items are manually depolluted. All parts that can be recycled are removed and separated before the items are shredded. The components are then broken down back into their raw materials and sent for smelting. Plastics that contain BFRs (substances that can’t be recycled) are separated and sent for high temperature incineration with all other plastics sent for polymer extraction.
