Why appliance recycling is important
You’re helping the environment by responsibly disposing of the harmful materials found in many old appliances. Skilled appliance disposal companies prevent PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyl), mercury, oils, and refrigerants from contaminating the environment. Did you know that many old appliances give off ozone-depleting gases as they decompose? Many also contain materials such as plastics that don’t break down in landfills.
When you remove old appliances from your home, you’re removing the toxic chemicals they contain from your home as well. You should never break down an old appliance on your own. That will just expose you to these chemicals even more. A trained professional is your best bet to reduce your exposure to these toxins.
Save energy by getting rid of old appliances
Today’s new appliances use less water, electricity, and gas than older ones. For example, new water heaters can save you 30% on your gas bill. New refrigerators use at least 50% less energy than older models. Replacing your old washing machine can save 50% on your water use and 35% on your electricity use. These savings add up.
