Fridges and freezers
Accepted at recycling centre?
Fridge and freezer recycling
Further details

Most empty fridges and freezers (including non-commercial glass fronted fridges) are accepted at the Recycling Centres. However, commercial glass fronted fridges, all glass topped fridges and fridges missing their motors are not accepted. 

Please note: a permit system is in operation for household waste taken to Recycling Centres in a van, pick-up, car-towed trailer or sign written vehicle. However, if you are hiring a van to transport your own household waste, temporary access can be granted by calling the Customer Service Centre at least 48 hours before your planned visit.

You could also use a retailer take back scheme if you are purchasing a new fridge/freezer or contact your district council who can offer a chargeable bulky waste collection.

If your fridge or freezer is still in good working order, you could donate it to a furniture reuse group.
