Is it time to part ways with your old refrigerator? Maybe it’s taking up unnecessary space, no longer works, or you’re just ready for an upgrade. No matter the reason, it’s important to dispose of your fridge properly. If you have an old fridge that’s ready to be discarded, then it’s time to learn the ins and outs of fridge disposal.

What responsible fridge disposal means

Because fridges use chemicals to keep their interior cold, it’s incredibly important that fridge disposal is done properly. A few key steps are necessary to ensure your fridge is disposed of responsibly.

Lifting and moving safely

Proper fridge disposal starts with handling the fridge carefully when lifting and moving it. It’s best to keep fridges upright, which can make it difficult to manoeuvre through small spaces. Sometimes pulleys or other equipment is necessary to make sure the fridge doesn’t fall. Luckily, with the right equipment and expertise, your fridge can make its way out of your home quickly and safely.

Transporting with the right vehicle

The right vehicle has to be used to make sure the fridge doesn’t wobble or tip over while it’s being transported. Typically, this means using a ute or van, but the size of the vehicle can depend on the size of your fridge.

Disposing of the fridge responsibly

Finally, the fridge needs to be disposed of thoughtfully. Fridges can’t just be thrown in a landfill; they need to be handled with care and disposed of by professionals. This means following all relevant safety laws and also recycling as much of the appliance as possible.

How to dispose of your fridge

If you’ve ever tried to lift a fridge with just the strength of your arms, you know that fridges are extremely heavy. Their weight along with their size makes them difficult to remove if you don’t have the expertise or equipment. Small doorways, stairs, and limited space can all make moving your fridge a hassle. Fridge disposal is one household chore you might want to leave to the professionals.
