Whitegoods removal/recycling Perth Bin Hire
Generally speaking, white goods aren’t easily transportable, which separates them from appliances like toasters and mixers. Examples of a common whitegoods include a fridge, freezer, microwave oven, stove, dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer and air conditioner.
Depending on the condition of the product, it may be accepted by a second-hand dealer or at a reuse centre. Whitegoods are generally disposed of through collection in metal recycling programs, where they are shredded and their metal is recovered. Some charities may accept white goods for recycling but many can’t as there is a significant cost in ensuring they are functioning and safe.
Upgrading your kitchen appliances is all part of today’s technology-based world. Why stick with a standard fridge when you can have a fridge that makes ice and pours cold water on demand? The problem arises, however, when it comes to disposing of your redundant white goods.
Resell your dishwasher and fridge?
You may plan to resell your old appliance and, if you’re lucky, get a bit of money back to go towards purchasing your new one. However, in today’s tech-obsessed society, more and more people are choosing to invest in brand new kitchen appliances as they will often get more life out of them. It’s also increasingly more common for new white goods to come with an energy-saving guarantee and, by choosing carefully, you can not only save yourself money, but you’re also doing your bit to ease your carbon footprint. Trying to sell your old, money guzzling, the energy-draining dishwasher can now be nearly as hard as selling your obsolete, analogue TV.
If your old appliance still works, many people can find it hard to let go. Old fridges are often kept and used purely for drinks or as an overflow fridge. Large families might need the extra space, but most of the time fridges are being kept unnecessarily, draining energy and wasting your hard-earned money – but at least it’s not being dumped in landfill. Getting rid of your second fridge can save the average Australian household up to $210 a year.
Keeping old dishwashers and washing machines don’t really have the same use as there’s little need to do two washes at the same time. In reality, we usually end up hoarding our old kitchen appliances not knowing what to do with them and, unfortunately, they usually end up being taken to the tip and being dumped in landfill.
