Fridges and freezers
You can take any domestic fridges, freezers and fridge/freezers to our household waste and recycling centres who will dispose of them for free. Alternatively you can arrange a special uplift by completing the uplift request form or by contacting Refuse collection, grounds maintenance and street cleansing helpline.
Fridges and freezers can be recycled by specialist companies.
Why do fridge/freezers need to be recycled?
Fridges and freezers are also considered special waste and they can only be taken to licensed specialist recycling facilities. Over 95% of the average fridge/freezer can be recycled as plastics and metals.
