Because fridges and freezers contain fluorinated greenhouses, such as hydrofluorocarbon, they are regarded as hazardous waste. This is because this group of chemicals, when mishandled have ozone-depleting qualities. Resultantly, both fridges and freezers need to be disposed of by specialist waste management providers.
Safe Fridge and Freezer Disposal
To dispose of fridge and freezers safely, they must first be segregated from general waste and processed at a licenced specialist recycling facility, such as Valley Trading in Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
From here our specially trained team can de-gas your fridge freezers. This process removes the harmful potential of their gasses.
After this process is complete, they can then be processed for recycling. This involves breaking down the appliances and segregating them into their elemental materials, which can then be recycled accordingly.
