Appliance removal is a heavy job, but it is indispensable at times. Appliances get old and they break; new ones come in to replace them. What do you do with the old ones? Surely they have to go, but how do you move them?
If your appliances are still in good condition, you can always sell them. Older ones that are still relatively functional or can be refurbished can be donated. Then there are those that have well and truly had their day. These need to be disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Instead of trying to get rid of your appliances yourself, you can hire a professional appliance removal service. Disposing of appliances yourself is not only tricky, but it could also result in improper disposal. Many old appliances contain ozone-depleting substances, which could be harmful to the environment if these machines are left to break down in a landfill. A professional appliance removal service can ensure that these items are disposed of properly or taken to specialized appliance recycling facilities.
You’re probably thinking that there is a limit on what types of appliances we can take, but this is not the case. We can pick up appliances of all types and sizes and make sure they are either reused or recycled. The appliances we take include the following:
- Refrigerators and freezers
- Washing machines
- Air conditioners
- Stoves and ovens
What appliances can be recycled
You would probably be surprised to know which appliances can be recycled. Fridges, microwaves, toasters, and ovens can all be stripped for parts. Large appliances are usually dismantled for scrap metal. The metal is then melted down and reused in manufacturing. Smaller devices contain many recyclable materials and can be disposed of in standard recycling bins.
