Refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, and other home appliances provide people with comfort and convenience. After several years of use, however, even appliances that were state-of-the-art when purchased start to wear down or malfunction. Instead of chucking these appliances out with the trash, you can hire a hauling service to pick them up and recycle them for you. Here is a look at some of the ways that appliance recycling helps to create a greener, healthier planet for future generations.
Recover Scrap Metal and Reusables
Just because the appliance you are getting rid of no longer serves a purpose in your home does not mean that it is useless to society. Refrigerant from refrigerators and freezers can often be reclaimed. Metals, plastics, and glass that are used in the construction of your appliance can be recycled and used for other purposes. Even foam can sometimes be recovered and reused.
Safely Manage Hazardous Materials
Whatever components cannot be recycled or reused will be recovered and disposed of in a way that ensures few harmful chemicals are released into the environment. Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs), mercury, oils, and other environmentally toxic chemicals will be handled in a way that prevents their release into the ground or the earth’s atmosphere. This promotes healthier ground soil and reduces greenhouse gas emissions that deplete the ozone layer.
Save Landfill Space
America’s landfill capacity is shrinking, and burying bulky appliances in landfills only makes matters worse. Have a hauling professional cart your appliances off of your property for you, and feel good knowing that you are saving precious landfill space and that all parts of your old appliances will end up in a place where they will best serve the environment.
