95% of the materials used to make fridges and freezers can be recycled into new white goods.
Repair when possible. For local contacts see the Yellow Pages or W: www.yell.com.
Old fridges and freezers are accepted at Community Recycling Centres. See HOUSEHOLD WASTE RECYCLING CENTRES.
For fridges and freezers no longer in working order, contact your local council for the bulky uplift service (See Local Councils). There is likely to be a charge for this service.
When buying new appliances, look out for energy efficiency information. A good rating (e.g. A) cuts down on electricity running costs.
