Take your old alarms to one of the depots listed here. It will be transported to a recycler for processing and then broken down into different parts. The resulting materials are then recycled as much as possible.

The maximum limit for return at one time is 40 smoke or CO alarms. If you have more than 40 units, please contact AlarmRecycle to arrange a free pickup.

This applies to Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
