Appliances Containing Refrigerants

Air conditioning units, refrigerators, and freezers can be safely recycled with us.

Why Recycle your Appliances Containing Refrigerants with us?

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer: Refrigerants often contain chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), which can be harmful to the ozone layer. Proper recycling of these appliances prevents these chemicals from being released into the atmosphere.
  • Energy Efficiency: The process of making new appliances from recycled materials usually requires less energy than creating them from raw materials. This contributes to energy conservation and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Resource Conservation: Appliances containing refrigerants are made of valuable materials like metal, plastic, and glass, which can be recovered and used in the production of new products.
  • Reduction in Landfill Waste: By recycling, we can prevent these large and potentially harmful appliances from taking up space in landfills.
  • Job Creation: The recycling sector not only creates green jobs but also stimulates the economy by providing materials for other industries.

Our Refrigerant-Containing Appliances Recycling Process

Our experienced team first assesses the appliance for reusable parts and recyclable materials. The appliance is then carefully disassembled, and valuable materials like metals and plastics are separated for recycling.

The crucial part of the process is the safe removal and disposal of refrigerant gases. These gases are carefully extracted and safely contained, preventing their release into the environment. The refrigerants are then either recycled or destroyed following all environmental regulations.



Once the recycling process is complete, we provide a comprehensive report detailing what was recycled. This ensures transparency and allows you to see the impact of your decision to recycle.

Ready for the Future

Once the materials have been recycled, they are ready to be used in the manufacture of new products. This circular economy approach reduces the need for raw material extraction, promoting a greener future.

Helping Forge a Sustainable Future

When you choose to recycle your refrigerant-containing appliances, you're not just ensuring their safe disposal. You are also playing a part in creating a more sustainable future. Recycling helps to conserve natural resources, reduce landfill waste, and cut down the demand for raw materials.
