Learn more about White Goods Recycling in England
White goods such as fridges, washing machines, air conditioners, clothes dryers, water heaters, ovens, and stoves are used for everyday use. For many people, these items can help to make our day to day life easier and more comfortable. But to the environment, there can be a significant threat.
Not that long ago, environmental and safety standards in England were poor and the industry suffered from a lack of investment. Most unwanted electrical items ended up in landfills. Some white goods might have found their way to scrap yards alongside old, unwanted vehicles.
In England white goods are disposed of each year and especially fridge disposal and freezer disposal should be performed correctly as they contain hazardous components that need specialist treatment. Fridges pose a significant challenge for the fridge recycling industry since they contain ozone-harming gases, such as chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gases. Newer pentane fridges may not damage the ozone, but their explosive potential means that their recycling is no less difficult, therefore fridge and freezer recycling are vital.
White goods are composed of plastics and costly materials that can be recycled. By performing white goods recycling, you can prevent toxic materials from getting into the soil or dissipate into the air that would cause damage to the environment. You also will reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused by the production of new materials.
White goods contain metal, which can be recycled several times. For instance, fridge recycling produces recycled metal that can be used to make new and usable products. Furthermore, proper fridge disposal and other forms of white goods recycling can reduce the volume of junk sent to landfills.
