The Benefits of Recycling Appliances
The benefits of proper recycling and garbage disposal can be beneficial to both homeowners and the environment. Some of the main benefits of recycling appliances include:
Protecting the Ozone Layer
Since appliances, such as refrigerators and air conditioners, can contain chemicals that are harsh on the environment, it is important to ensure that they never end up in the landfill. Chemical gasses can eventually leak out of old appliances that have been tossed in the trash, causing damage to the atmosphere and the ozone layer.
Salvaging Scrap Metal
Recycling appliances that contain aluminum, such as dryers, ovens, washers, etc., allows for scrap metal to be salvaged. Mining for new metals has a serious impact on the environment, so reclaiming as much metal as possible can help cut down on negatively affecting the environment.
What Appliances can be Recycled?
Most household appliances, both large and small, can be recycled. Larger household appliances (refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, ovens, etc.) can be broken down into scrap metal, which can then be recycled or melted down and reused in the manufacturing of new appliances. In most cases, you will need to transfer large appliances to the transfer station or recycling centre on your own, or you will need to hire a junk disposal company to remove the appliances for you.
Unlike large appliances, smaller appliances (toasters, microwaves, food processors, etc.) can often be recycled by placing them in your household blue bin; however, since recycling rules may vary, it is important to check the recycling guidelines for your particular area. If the appliances cannot be recycled in the blue bin, chances are that you will need to take them to a recycling facility.
