Guide to Recycling Appliances

Posted by Daniel Lawrence on September, 2016

One of the best ways to keep our planet clean and ready for the next generation is by recycling and reusing materials. In this way, we can cut down on the amount we waste and hopefully preserve what we still have. When you have large appliances to recycle, there are certain rules and regulations that need to be followed due to the fact that they can sometimes have dangerous elements inside of them. If these are not disposed of properly, it can cause harm to our soil or water.

Proper Disposal of Large Appliances

Many people will just put their old refrigerators, freezers, stoves, washers, and dryers onto the curb in front of their house to be picked up as garbage. When you do it this way, they go to a dump where they are just going to rust. Each and every one of these appliances are recyclable, you just need to pay very close attention to your states guidelines for recycling. As an alternative, if the machine is still in working order, you might consider donating it to the local soup kitchen or the Red Cross.

Disposing Smaller Appliances

Another way to handle appliance recycling for smaller appliances such as microwaves, garbage disposals, and air-conditioners is to turn them in for scrap metal. This is a process that completely removes all the harmful elements so that the body of the appliance can be used again. Many construction companies make use of these types of appliances by purchasing them and reusing them in other ways. This is definitely another very good option to consider. H&C Metals in New Jersey is a family-owned company with almost 40 years of experience in the scrap metal business and can quickly schedule a pickup to take your old appliances away so that you can do your part in keeping our planet clean for future generations.
