Kitchen appliances are often thrown out onto the curb for the garbage collectors to pick up. From there, they go to a landfill where they rust, and expel harmful waste into the environment. Since appliances are not biodegradable, they just sit and take up space. Large appliances like refrigerators, stoves, freezers, washers, and dryers can all be easily recycled. Old refrigerators/freezers contain extremely harmful ozone-depleting agents.
It is important that older appliances be disposed of properly and permanently so that these harmful chemicals are destroyed. Even with small appliances, these should be recycled to reduce any harm to the environment as well as to conserve natural resources. Additionally, replacing an old and inefficient appliance such as a refrigerator, can save you nearly $70 a year, or 700 kWh a year.
We recycle old appliances by donating them to organizations that can use them, or taking them to recycling centers that can salvage their parts.
