How fridge removal works in Harrogate

Start with a free quote for fridge removal in Harrogate tailored to your needs – including the type, size, and number of fridges you want removed, where from in Harrogate, and when. We’ll book a collection date if you’re happy with the price for when one of our purple vans will come out to your address.

A couple of our professional team will lift, carry, and load your refrigerator into the van, so you don’t need to worry about shifting it yourself. Once everything’s loaded up, they’ll drive it to a nearby waste transfer station in North Yorkshire. Here it’s checked and sent for recycling, donation (if in working condition), or disposal.

If your old fridge is recycled the general process involves any refrigerant and motor oil being drained first. Its motor, plastic shell, foam insulation, and metal parts will be removed and sent for recycling alongside other similar materials. These can be converted into recycled metals and plastics that are used to create new fridges.

Local recycling centres in Harrogate

Harrogate residents can take fridges and freezers to the two main household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) – Harrogate HWRC and West Harrogate HWRC. Disposal of fridge freezers from a household is free and you only need to register for a vehicle permit if using a van, pickup, or another commercial vehicle.

Any fridge freezers from commercial settings can only be taken to West Harrogate HWRC by a licensed waste carrier. Charges apply to dispose of any fridges that class as commercial waste (from a business, school, landlord etc.). You’ll also need to register your vehicle to use the site. 

Harrogate households can also use the council’s bulky item collection service to get rid of old fridges and freezers. Current costs are £46.75 per two items, with an additional collection needed for any more items. The time and date of the collection depend on your address and contractors won’t remove a fridge freezer from inside your home.

Brilliant and Seamless service from start to finish. Divert came to my rescue when I required my old gas oven and fridge/freezer removing. Cameron’s assistance and knowledge was incredibly helpful throughout the process, and the quick turn around from quote to collection was superb. 5 stars all around, will definitely be using again.
