We pick up and dispose of all types of white goods by recycling them when possible
Disposing of your old appliances on your own not only presents the threat of back pain, but doing it improperly can also cause harm to the environment. Many old appliances contain ozone-depleting chemicals that disperse into the air when they’re left in the tip. Let’s get it done right—your back and the world around you will thank you! Old white goods that 1800-GOT-JUNK? collects, like refrigerators, washing machines, air conditioners, microwaves, and more, are safely recycled or donated to charity for further use whenever possible.
How Do We Do It?
Household appliances are mostly made up of metal and other chemicals that are responsible for their proper functioning. Excessive caution needs to be taken so that we protect Earth’s climate and ozone layer during the process of disposing of the appliances. The first step of recycling old appliances is to make sure any hazardous materials like mercury switches or refrigerants are removed. These materials are then recovered and recycled.
In the process of recycling, we make sure that we:
- Recover, treat, or destroy the refrigerant and insulating foam in a proper way
- Safely dispose of hazardous waste products such as mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
- Properly recycle ‘used oil’ in the machines Recycle all recoverable, durable materials including metal, plastic, and glass
Once the above process is completed, the appliance is then shredded into tiny pieces and piled up for sorting. After this, the magnets will remove any steel while the eddy currents will remove any nonferrous metals deposits like aluminum. The remaining components like the tempered glass and plastics are then separated and sold to manufacturers.
White Goods Removal FAQs
What appliances are considered white goods?
White goods are major appliances used during housekeeping tasks. Unlike plumbing fixtures, these machines require electricity or fuel to run and are named after the white enamel that was once used to finish the machines. White goods include dishwashers, laundry machines, freezers, refrigerators, stoves, water heaters, microwaves, air conditioners, and trash compactors.
What is the difference between white goods and brown goods?
The term “white good” is used to describe domestic appliances such as refrigerators, washers, and dryers. The term “brown good” is used to describe consumer electronics, such as DVD players, stereos, and home entertainment systems. These two terms are used to classify different consumer goods for economists, service providers, and retailers.
