Household appliances, such as dishwashers, refrigerators, and freezers, account for up to 14% of the energy used in a Canadian home. If your appliances are eating up more energy than this, it might be time for new ones.
Old and broken appliances will use more energy and take up space in your home. Luckily, you don't have to keep your old appliances around when the new ones come in.
Consider appliance recycling to dispose of this waste properly. Keep reading to learn about the value of appliance recycling in Ontario.
Why Should You Recycle Appliances?
Many large appliances used for cooling and freezing include refrigerants. Refrigerants harm human health and the environment when they aren't properly disposed of.
Trained technicians will safely remove refrigerants before sending the appliance out for recycling.
Appliance recycling prevents this problem and reduces the need for raw materials to manufacture new appliances.
Major appliances are mostly made of metal. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are recovered from appliances and re-entered into the market for future use.
What Can I Recycle?
If you want to dispose of your appliances, appliance recycling services from a trusted recycler can help. These are some of the appliances you can recycle:
Washer and dryer
Fridge and freezer
In addition to appliances, a trusted scrap dealer and recycler can help you recycle various other things like computers, telephones, speakers, etc.
Selling Appliances for Parts
When you buy new appliances, you hope they work for the long haul. Dead and broken appliances may still have valuable parts that can be stripped and reused for other products. Scrap dealers can turn old appliances into new ones.
Selling your appliance parts reduces the amount of nonbiodegradable waste in landfills. Parts made of metal have endless recycling capacity. This protects natural resources and reduces the amount of energy used in manufacturing.
