White Goods Disposal & Removals

If you’ve ever tried to move a fridge or a stove alone, you know it’s tough. In fact, white goods removal is almost impossible without help. Their size and awkward shapes can make lifting, maneuvering, and tossing your white goods out a huge pain. 

Aside from the dangers associated with lifting heavy and unwieldy appliances, improper white goods disposal can also harm the environment. Many old household items contain harmful chemicals that disperse into the air or soil when left to break down in a landfill.

Taking the proper steps to handle your appliance removal not only preserves your back health, but the health of the environment, too.

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.
