How fridge freezer removal works in York
Book a collection time and date for the removal of your old fridge freezer in York. Let us know the address, type of fridge freezer, and the number of items (if you want more than one fridge removed) and we’ll provide a free no obligation quote. One of our trucks or vans will visit at the agreed time if you decide to proceed.
Fridge freezers are heavy but our drivers have that old York Viking strength to remove your refrigerator, so you don’t have to break your back trying. They’re also licensed waste carriers and able to remove commercial fridge freezers. They’ll transport the fridge freezer to a relevant waste management facility around York for safe disposal and recycling.
The process for recycling a fridge freezer depends on its type and the facility. Generally, the refrigerant and motor oil are drained and the motor is removed for recycling separately. Gases are extracted from its insulation foam before the shell is removed and the different materials separated (plastic, metal, and foam).
These materials are stored separately and sent for recycling alongside other similar materials. They’ll be recycled and used to create new products – possibly even new fridges.
