no missed collections
divert waste collection truck

Fridge removal in Leeds can be a challenge without a van and the labour to move such big and bulky electrical appliances. We offer fridge freezer collection for Leeds households and businesses to make getting rid of your old one fast, easy, and affordable. And we try to divert as many old fridges as possible away from landfill.

Responsible disposal and recycling of old fridges is vital as they’re a type of hazardous waste. It’s your duty to ensure any old fridge you’re getting rid of is disposed of safely and legally to protect human health and the local Leeds environment. Our licensed waste carriers provide peace of mind that your fridges are processed properly at the end of their life.

How fridge removal works in Leeds

Start by getting a free quote for fridge freezer collection in Leeds. This is based on the size and number of fridges you want removing, where from, and when. If you’re happy with the no-obligation quote price, we’ll book the removal for the day and time you want.

One of our purple trucks and likely a team of two will head to your home or business in Leeds on the day. They’ll do all the backbreaking work of moving your old fridge and loading it into the van, so you can save your strength. Then it’ll be driven to a local waste transfer station in Leeds.

Once the fridge is dropped off and all relevant paperwork taken care of it’ll be recycled. The process for recycling a fridge freezer varies but normally the refrigerant and motor oil are drained first before the motor is taken out and recycled separately. Any gases are extracted from its insulation foam and the shell is removed. 

Other materials (plastic, metal, and foam) that make up the fridge are separated. They’re then sent for recycling alongside other waste products of the same stream, which are often turned into new products (sometimes new fridges and freezer parts).

Local recycling centres in Leeds

Eight household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) in Leeds accept fridges and freezers for disposal from residents across the city. You need a permit if you visit any site in a commercial or large vehicle or with a trailer. If you visit in a big car such as an SUV, estate, or MPV you don’t need a permit.

Fridge freezers from businesses can only be taken to the waste transfer stations in Seacroft and Kirkstall. As they’re a type of hazardous waste there’s a charge of £23 per load or visit, plus a charge per item of £23 for fridges and freezers that are commercial waste. 

Leeds City Council also offers an unwanted item collection for private residents that includes fridge freezers. However, the fridge freezer must be smaller than 6×4 feet and the collection can happen any time between 7am and 5pm on the day.

All eighth HWRCs in Leeds have the same opening hours and contact details.

Between 31 October 2022 to 26 March 2023 – 8am to 4pm

Donate a fridge freezer in Leeds

If you’re upgrading to a more efficient model or moving home and can’t take your old fridge freezer with you but it’s still in working condition, consider donating it. Passing on an old fridge freezer is a sustainable option as it avoids creating any waste or using energy to recycle it while helping those in need.

There are many charities and other services in Leeds that accept fridge freezers in good, reusable condition, such as:

  • SLATE – donate or arrange collection of fridge freezers in working order. They’re resold in shops in Hunslet and Armley, which provide work and training opportunities for people with learning disabilities.
  • Emmaus Leeds – accepts fridge freezers in working order and offers a collection service. These are resold in their second-hand superstore to support homeless people in the community.
  • Martin House – fridge freezers that work can be donated or collected and taken to the Thorp Arch furniture warehouse and showroom. Funds raised support the children’s hospice and families across West, North, and East Yorkshire.
  • St Luke’s Cares – they can carry out complete house clearances or will just accept an old fridge freezer that works. These are resold in their south Leeds store to support young people in the community.
