Refrigerator Disposal Guide

Disposing of an old fridge to make room for a new one doesn’t have to be a big problem.

Refrigerator Disposal Guide

Unlike other types of household waste, you cannot throw your old fridge into a skip. It’s illegal to dispose of fridges in such this way. Fly-tipped fridges cause harm to public health and the environment.

Was the fridge made before the year 2000?

Prior to the year 2000, fridges were full of harmful substances; Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). These were phased out of use by 2000. If your fridge pre-dates this, disposal costs will be higher.

Can my fridge be donated or sold?

If your old fridge still has plenty of life in it, you can donate it to someone who needs one. Your unwanted fridge could be perfect for a family member or friend – or even a charity.

Another option is to sell the old fridge, online or with a classified ad in the newspaper. 

Recycling centres

If your fridge is at the end of its life, disposal is the only option. Before you take your fridge to the local council recycling centre, make sure they can accept it.
