Fridges/ freezers can be collected either by:

Take to a household waste recycling centre

Or you can take a fridge/ freezer to any of our household waste recycling centres for no charge. Fridge and freezer drawers can be disposed of in the general waste container.

Old fridges and freezers are hazardous waste due to the gases they contain. The gases have to be recovered safely before the fridges and freezers can be recycled.

Please ensure that all food has been removed from fridges and freezers before delivery to HWRCs.

However, you may need to apply for vehicle vouchers if you are using a larger vehicle to take a fridge/freezer to one of our HWRCs.

For other kitchen items that may be chargeable visit our waste charges page.
