Large items of furniture like fridges and freezers are often a lot harder to dispose of than general municipal waste. If you’re having a large scale clear-out, redecorating, or even moving house – you’re likely going to want to find yourself in a situation where you need scrap fridge collection, old mattress collection or furniture disposal, quickly and cheaply. That’s certainly not easy to come across.
Luckily, our scrap fridge collection services are designed to be as quick as cost effective for you as possible. Here’s everything you need to know.
Your scrap fridge collection obligations
As the owner of an old fridge, you have certain obligations to ensure it’s disposed of effectively. Whether that involves organising relevant waste collection services or making sure it’s rehomed elsewhere is down to you. One thing’s for sure though: flytipping is a definite no.
It might seem like dumping old furniture is a great alternative to paying for scrap fridge collection. But it has untold environmental side-effects, and could well result in you paying fines of up to £20,000. That’s a whole lot more than you’re ever going to pay for responsible waste clearance.
How does scrap fridge collection work?
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.
