Learn more about Freezer Disposal in England
When you are thinking about upgrading your freezer to a newer, more modern model, you will have to dispose of the old one. Considering that fridge freezers are classified as hazardous waste by the Environment Agency, it means that you cannot just throw them in a skip or send them off to anywhere to be disposed of.
Freezers are classified as hazardous waste due to the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) contained inside the cooling systems. If released into the environment, CFCs can destroy the protective ozone layer above the earth. They are potent greenhouse gases that can contribute to global climate change. Besides CFCs, fridge freezers also contain other substances that can be harmful to both humans and the environment, such as oils, pentane, foam, mercury, and other substances. Proper freezer disposal is vital because these substances need to be disposed of in compliance with the latest relevant waste regulations.
