Who hauls away old refrigerator for free? If we have a local Fast Free Appliance Removal specialist in your area, he has you covered!
Replacing an older refrigerator and prefer to have yours hauled away and recycled properly? Need a broken refrigerator taken away, or just don't need that garage fridge, or freezer anymore?
In many cities, waste management and trash collection will not take away unwanted fridges set to the roadside. Labeled as hazardous waste, proper disposal can be somewhat hard to find. Many scrap metal recycling centers, and even city /county dumps are requiring a form from and EPA Certified and Licensed Refrigeration Technician before accepting these items for disposal.
The EPA has strict guidelines on recovering Freon, refrigerants, oils and contaminates inside a refrigerator's compressor. Most appliance repair companies have a recovery unit to pump out and collect these substances. The problem is that many will charge up up $150 to perform this service. That being said, most homeowners will simply set them to the roadside and hope the local scrap metal pick up guy hauls it away.
