How fridge removal works in Wakefield

Request a free no obligation quote for fridge removal in Wakefield based on the type, size, and the number of fridges you need collecting, where from, and when. Then if you’re happy with the fixed price we can book a collection date that suits you. One of our purple vans and two of our team will come out on the day.

They’ll lift and carry your old fridge, then load it into the van to save you from the backbreaking work. Once all fridges for removal are loaded up they’ll drive to a nearby waste transfer station. The fridge will be unloaded, checked, and sent for responsible disposal – reuse, recycling, or disposal.

Any fridges in working condition may be donated to a local charity in Wakefield. Most that aren’t usable are recycled following a process where the refrigerant and motor oil are first drained. Other materials are removed and sent for recycling alongside the same waste stream – such as the motor, plastic shell, foam insulation, and any metal parts.

Local recycling centres in Wakefield

You can take a fridge freezer from your home to one of three household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) across Wakefield – Wakefield, Glasshoughton, and South Kirkby HWRCs. Residents can dispose of fridges and freezers for free, you just need to take proof of address or a permit. Commercial fridge freezers are not accepted at any site.

Should you want to take your old fridge in a large vehicle like a van, pickup, or minibus – or have a trailer larger than 6ft x 4ft – you’ll need a commercial vehicle permit. No trailers larger than 8ft x 6ft with a bed load greater than three metres are allowed to use the HWRCs.

Wakefield Council also offers a bulky collection service for households in the city. This includes the removal of fridge freezers (up to three items at a time) for a charge of £30. They can’t remove glass-fronted fridges though, and they must be empty with the rubber seal removed and the door taped shut.
