How to Recycle a Refrigerator That No Longer Works

Refrigerators are wonderful appliances that help make modern life what it is today. However, like all household appliances, it is only a matter of time before they break down. Once they do, you are left with a heavy, clunky piece of junk that takes up valuable space in your kitchen, preventing you from installing a new refrigerator. What’s worse, the refrigerator is one of the most inconvenient household appliances to install and remove. When you make plans to replace your refrigerator, you should also make plans to hire appliance removal in Orlando and have it properly disposed of. Refrigerator models both old and new contain many individual parts and materials that can, and should be recycled.


To make sure that your refrigerator is properly disposed of, follow these easy steps:


  • Hire a professional. Look into hiring a company that provides appliance removal in Orlando and can properly dismantle and dispose of the refrigerator and its individual parts. While this may seem like an easy DIY project, it can actually be quite dangerous if you do not have experience in disassembling and moving large objects.
  • Prepare for pickup. Prepare the refrigerator for pickup by removing the shelves, drawers, and, when possible, the doors. An adjustable wrench is a good tool for removing the refrigerator doors. This will help to save time when the professional junk removers come to take care of the more technical part. If you feel intimidated by removing your refrigerator doors, don’t worry, your junk removal expert will take care of it for you.
  • Make way for the removal. Plan out a clear and easily accessible path to the refrigerator to avoid any nasty spills or accidents while moving the larger parts. Make sure this path goes from the refrigerator itself to the vehicle it will be loaded on.
