Recycling Vape Products
Industrial plastic waste is becoming a growing concern for both our planet and our customers. Vape Superstore is committed to becoming a more sustainable and environmentally friendly company, and it is critical that we all do our part to ensure that materials are recycled properly. It is critical that we continue to recycle metal, glass, paper, cardboard, wood, and plastic, as all of these materials have a global impact on the environment. As a result, we ask that you please recycle your vaping products.
How to recycle E-Liquid bottles
All of the e-liquid bottles sold on our website are recyclable, including the nibs and caps. This means that everything from the cap to the box your e-liquid arrives in can be recycled, as long as it's done correctly.
We ask that you do not dispose of your e-liquid bottles in general waste. Always ensure that your empty e-liquid bottles have been cleaned and rinsed to remove any residue that may have remained within the bottle.
How to recycle your vape kits
There are also environmentally friendly methods for recycling your e-cigarette and components. Here's a step-by-step guide to safely disposing of your e-cigarette:
- Make sure to disassemble your device by unscrewing all of the components and removing the battery and coil.
- Make sure your tank is free of any residue. This is easily accomplished by simply washing out your tank after it has been disconnected from the e-cigarette battery.
- In your glass and plastic recycling bins, recycle any glass and plastic parts of your device.
- Metal components of your e-cigarette kit must be recycled separately in a metal bin.
- Designated battery bins must be used to recycle your battery, ensuring that it is disposed of properly.
- E-cigarette packaging made of paper or cardboard can also be recycled.
Recycling Disposable Vapes and Pods
Disposable vapes are not the most environmentally friendly way to vape, but they can be recycled with a little extra effort to disassemble the device. As these devices become more popular in the UK, recycling the component parts has become increasingly important.
To be recycled, each disposable must be disassembled to remove any non-plastic waste and then washed to remove any remaining residue. After you've completed those two steps, you can recycle each component in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Recycling Vape Batteries
E-cigarette batteries can be recycled; however, to avoid any hazardous chemicals affecting our environment, it is critical that any vape or e-cigarette batteries be disposed of properly.
Simply remove any tank, refillable pod, or coils from your device and place the battery into a battery safety bin, which can be found in your local supermarket or recycling facility.
How to reduce your carbon footprint
We are extremely fortunate to have some of the best vape brands right here in the UK; we recommend purchasing your e-liquids from a manufacturer based in the UK to help reduce your carbon footprint. If you are unsure where a product on our website is made, please do contact our team who can advise.
