CALL US TODAY FOR A NO OBLIGATION QUOTE FOR DISPOSAL OF YOUR UNWANTED FRIDGES AND FREEZERS
When it comes to disposing of unwanted fridges and freezers, there are a few things that need to be considered to ensure you are doing it correctly and in an environmentally friendly and legally compliant manner. Unlike non-hazardous commercial and domestic waste, fridges and freezers cannot simply be placed into a skip.
You can be fined up to £2,500 for illegal fly tipping – even if your chosen waste contractor disposes of the waste incorrectly.
The reason behind this need for specialist disposal is that some components of fridges can be extremely harmful to the environment, and thus cannot simply be thrown away. Indeed, since January 2002, all ozone-depleting substances (ODS) must in fact be removed from fridges before they can be recycled or thrown away. Should anyone ignore this rule or fly tip their fridge to get rid of it, they can be prosecuted and fined up to £2,500.
Our hazardous waste service allows us to collect and dispose of commercial and domestic fridges, freezers, water coolers and air conditioning units in a professional manner, giving you peace of mind that you are using a company who will dispose of your goods responsibly.
At each collection we will provide a Hazardous Waste Consignment Note to ensure full traceability and prove full compliance with the law.
