Why is fridge disposal important?

Proper disposal of fridges is essential for a number of reasons, including convenience, health and safety, and environmental concerns. These common electrical appliances, particularly larger fridges, contain harmful refrigerants like CFCs and HCFCs. If these chemicals are released incorrectly, they can contribute to ozone depletion and climate change.

Removing bulky waste can be dangerous. Lifting heavy items without the right training and proper technique often results in musculoskeletal or crushing injuries. This is exactly why we always recommend you hire an expert rubbish removal company when dealing with any kind of heavy junk item, especially if it’s an awkward size, such as a large fridge.

Fridges can also contain hazardous materials such as mercury switches, which require careful handling and expert disposal to prevent pollution and health risks. Responsible disposal practices ensure the safe extraction of these substances, ensuring that the environment is protected and people handling the materials are not at risk of poisoning. It’s worth noting that these types of materials are generally only found in older appliances.

We work with responsible, environmentally friendly facilities that recycle old appliances with care. Fridge recycling takes experience and expertise, and we ensure that all of the waste we remove is only taken to the very best recycling facilities.

Donate or sell it

If your fridge is still in working condition, consider donating it to a local charity or selling it to someone in need. This way, you can extend its lifespan and reduce waste. Donating or selling your fridge can benefit those in your community who may not have the means to purchase a new appliance. And you might even make a little extra money on the side.

Take it to a recycling centre

Many local recycling centres will have sections or facilities specifically for appliances like fridges. Check with your local waste management authority or recycling centre to see if they provide this service. Recycling ensures that valuable materials are salvaged and reused, contributing to a more sustainable outcome. By participating in recycling programs, you can help minimise the environmental impact of your old fridge and build a greener future for all.

Manufacturer recycling programs

Some fridge manufacturers have take-back programs where they will take back your old appliance for recycling when you buy a new one. These programs often adhere to strict environmental standards for disposal. By using a manufacturer take-back program, you can ensure that your fridge is disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner, while also supporting companies that are committed to recycling appliances.
