Top Fridge Removal related questions
When should I replace my fridge?
It's recommended that you replace a refrigerator that's more than 15 years old – even if it still works – as it could be costing you dearly in energy bills. Modern fridges and freezers are designed to be much more energy-efficient.
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?
You don't have to make any preparations if you've arranged commercial fridge removal. The removalists can take the appliance out of your home intact. If you're recycling or donating your fridge however, you will usually be required to remove the doors and move it outside for collection.
What do fridge removalists do?
Our fridge removal and disposal service involves picking up your old refrigerator and making sure they are properly dismantled and recycled. Before your Tasker arrives, make sure that you empty the contents of your fridge so they can get to work right away. Once collected, they load your appliance onto their vehicle and bring it to a facility for appropriate disposal. Here's what you can expect:
Fridge pick-up and removal
Your Tasker arrives at your home to pick up your refrigerator. Whether you're looking to retire an old refrigerator or need to get a broken fridge removal, your Tasker can figure out the best way to remove it from your kitchen without damaging your property. This way, you won't even have to worry about doing the heavy lifting yourself!
Refrigerant removal and disposal
With the fridge removal done, your broken unit will now be brought to an old fridge disposal area. While it may be tempting to stow away the refrigerator at a dump, these appliances can be a bit more tricky. After all, these contain chemicals that can be dangerous if not disposed of correctly. As such, it must be taken to a proper disposal facility not only to comply with local legislation but to help ease the impact on the environment as well.
Fridge freezer disposal and recycling
Once the chemicals have been removed, your old unit can now be disposed of safely. If brought to a proper recycling plant, then your drained fridge casing will be dismantled to its base parts for recycling. Many parts of a fridge or freezer can be recycled into new products, including metals, plastics, and glass.
On the other hand, if your old unit was still in a repairable condition before the removal process, you have other options. You can have your Tasker bring your old fridge to a trusted charitable organization for it to be donated and repurposed. You can also have your old refrigerator repaired, with your Tasker aiding you in the reselling of your old appliance.
