When should I replace my fridge?

Can I dispose of a fridge myself?

Australia's strict refrigerator disposal laws mean you have to dispose of these appliances correctly, or you risk paying a fine and harming the environment. This is because many fridges and freezers contain Freon and other greenhouse gases which damage the ozone layer when released. You can save the trouble of finding an approved recycling centre by finding a fridge and Freon removal service near you.

Can I donate my old fridge?

Most people won't be interested in buying an unwanted fridge, especially if it's an older and less energy-efficient model. You can check your local council's website to see if they collect old whitegoods, but this usually only happens on specific dates and will have a charge.

Do I have to remove the fridge doors?

Fridge removal services pick up old appliances and make sure they are properly dismantled and recycled in line with Australian refrigerator disposal laws. This covers all types of products, from mini bar fridges to heavy chest freezers and sometimes even walk-in fridges.


Fridge removal is usually just one service offered by appliance removal companies that can also help you dispose of an old washing machine and other whitegoods if needed.

Fridge pick-up

The fridge removal team will arrange a time to pick up the old appliance from wherever it's located in your home and load it onto their vehicle, so you don't need to do any heavy lifting or take it to the curb. They'll take care not to cause any damage to your property on the way.

Refrigerant removal and disposal

However old the appliance is, fridges and freezers contain chemicals and oils that can pollute the environment if they're released. Under Australian federal law, these need to be removed and disposed of carefully and responsibly. Removal companies will transport your fridge to a facility where refrigerants such as Freon can be safely extracted.

Fridge recycling

Once the chemicals have been removed, your old fridge will be dismantled and its materials separated for recycling. Many parts of a fridge or freezer can be recycled into new products, including metals, plastics and glass.

New fridge installation

If you've bought a new fridge or freezer to replace the old one, you can check if the removal service also offers fridge installation. They can set up your new fridge in the same location as the old one so it's ready to go.
