Due to harmful substances used in the manufacturing of fridges, their disposal is heavily regulated. The Waste (Household Waste) Duty of Care (England & Wales) Regulations 2005, for example, enshrines in law the property owner’s responsibility to ensure harmful substances like those contained in old fridges are disposed of responsibly.
Waste collection specialists are subject to a whole load of other regulations to ensure that, when we’ve taken your waste, it goes on to a good place. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about that too much. All you need to do is make sure that your property is either donated or sold to somebody else, or given to waste clearance services like Skip It.
