Fridge Recycling and Disposal
Each year the UK recycles over 3 million fridges and freezers. They contain hazardous components that need specialist treatment.
Pure Planet Recycling offer a fridge recycling and disposal service for business customers. We collect domestic and commercial fridges, freezers and air conditioning units.
We are an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) for electrical waste. Our staff collect fridges from all types of businesses, schools and organisations. Using our own vehicles, we offer a nationwide collection service.
At the time of disposal we provide a Hazardous Waste Consignment Note. This gives a paper traceable route of what happens to your waste. It details the number, weight and hazardous components of the fridges.
We recycle all our refrigerants at a fridge recycling plant. They follow strict procedures to remove and treat each hazardous component.
There are only a handful of recycling facilities that can recycle fridges within the UK. Our recycling partner is one such company, so you can be sure of a compliant and legal recycling service.
We are able to offer competitive pricing due to the large volume of fridges we dispose of.
How Is A Fridge Recycled?
Ever wondered how a Fridge is recycled, once you dispose of it? What happens to each section and the harmful gases contained within? The following process is used within the fridge freezer recycling plant, conveyor belts move the units from one stage to the next.
Firstly, the fridges and freezers are emptied of any food, liquids, trays and shelves contained within. The unit is now clean of any contaminates and is able to be processed.
3. Shredding and Fraction Segregation
5. Magnetic Separation
6. Eddy Current Separation/Air Separator
Both Stage 2 and Stage 3 are completed within an inert Nitrogen Atmosphere, providing a safe processing environment.
This fridge recycling process allows for maximum recovery recycling rates whilst maintaining best recycling practice.
