It used to be that refrigerators were un-repairable they were dumped into a landfill and that was the last we would see of them. Today, thanks to recycling programs 95% of your old fridges or freezers can be recycled. This includes the recovery and proper disposal of PCB’s (poly –chlorinated biphenyls), mercury and oil.
The following parts are what get recycled from a fridge or freezer
-Metals and plastics
-Oils and refrigerant
-Polyurethane foam insulation
Old appliances are taken to recycling facilities or scrap yards where they are carefully dismantled. Each part is separated and then sent to other recycling centers.
Polyurethane foam insulation, mercury with CFC 11, Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants, glass, and oil are removed, leaving other materials such as metals and plastics that can be recycled for new uses.
