If your stove is delivered in wooden packaging, you can use this when firing in the stove. Just make sure that there are no screws etc. in the wood. Saw the wood into smaller pieces and use it the first times you light the stove.
If your stove is delivered in plastic packaging, this must be disposed according to national rules regarding disposal of waste. However, almost no plastic is used in the production of an Aduro stove – only for a very small part of the packaging.
Steel and cast iron
Steel and cast iron can be recycled by remelting. When you deliver these materials to the recycling depot, they are being reused in new production. The cast iron in the grate and the door, for example, is recycled from old iron.
The ceramic glass can be reused if there is no sticker on the glass. When you deliver the glass to the recycling depot, this must be disposed according to national rules regarding disposal of glass from a wood-burning stove. The melting of ceramic glass requires very high temperatures, which cannot be achieved in machines for melting normal glass.
When disposing your wood-burning stove, metal, vermiculite, and ceramic glass must be sorted separately. Dispose hereafter the materials according to the regulations at your nearest recycling depot.
