Appliance Recycling

Appliance recycling is a service that everyone will need at one time or another. Whether it is a refrigerator, freezer, washer, or dryer. Everyone uses these items in their households. It makes sense to recycle your appliance due to the high metal content. However most people don’t know that your appliance may very well be full of toxic substances. Hence, after E-Cycle Environmental’s junk removal service comes and performs the pick up there is a lot of prepping that has to take place before your old appliance can be recycled.

Refrigerators, freezers,AC Units, and dehumidifiers contain refrigerants. These refrigerant substances are ozone depleting substances, that if released to the environment, destroy the protective ozone layer above the earth. Refrigerants have high levels of green house gases, which means an improper release can contribute to global warming. So after our junk removal serivce picks up your appliance it needs to drained of any harmful materials. Then the toxic substances have to be “treated” so as not to harm the environment.

Other popular toxic substances that lie in your appliances are mercury, lead, pcb’s, and oil liquids. All of these items need to be handled and removed safely prior to the recycling process.
