Why Appliance Recycling Matters
Aside from the heavy lifting dangers associated with appliance removal, improper disposal can also harm the environment. That’s where ScrapMyAppliance.co.uk comes into play. Our professional team not only helps with your appliance removal, but also contributes to the environmental protection you believe in by recycling those old appliances.
The first step in appliance recycling is to manually dismantle each product, remove the hazardous components, and pick out the reusable parts. Recycling saves metal, plastic, and glass from ending up in the dump, and alleviates the need for extracting or producing these materials again.
Responsible appliance disposal helps to prevent the release of PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyl), mercury, and used oil. Stopping refrigerants and insulating foams from emitting ozone depleting substances (ODS) and green house gases (GHG) is another added benefit to the environment.
That’s why recycling is a much better option than dropping appliances off at the dump – since standard bin collectors would not pick them up. In fact, you would likely have to pay a steep fee if you were to bring them to a landfill. On the other hand, when you choose ScrapMyAppliance.co.uk you can feel good knowing we do all we can to donate or recycle your appliances. And the best part is you won’t have to lift a finger. Appliance recycling is the responsible thing to do. Saving the appliance and protecting the environment is something that you can be proud of throughout this process. After all, we’ve been recycling since before it was cool!
Our team disposes lots of products everyday, supporting the WEEE directive. We only charge for the cost of transporting the items to be disposed.
