HOW TO RECYCLE A FRIDGE
One of the main benefits of replacing an old refrigerator with a new one is to reduce energy usage, as newer refrigerators are a lot more energy-efficient than older ones. But after the new refrigerator has been delivered, what does the customer now do with the old unit? It is hard to believe, but every year more than 9 million refrigerators are disposed of in the United States. A percentage of them can be refurbished or resold, others are recycled, and the rest end up in landfills.
For those that can be recycled, the metal can be shredded and recycled while the insulating foam is shredded and sent to landfills. Refrigerators manufactured before 1995 used Freon-12 as a coolant which can be very damaging to the ozone layer if leaked. Newer models use HFC-134a instead, which still requires careful handling during the disposal process. In addition, up until 2005 refrigerators were insulated with foam that also contained ozone-depleting substances and posed a hazard. Only refrigerators manufactured within the last ten years contain foam-blowing agents that are both ozone and climate friendly.
Here is a sample listing of the materials that could compose a 1995 refrigerator:
140 lbs. metal,
20 lbs. plastic,
3 lbs. glass,
1 lb. CFC-11 foam insulation,
0.5 lbs. used oil (may be contaminated),
0.5 lb. Freon-12 refrigerant,
0.0003 lb. mercury containing components,
Trace small amount of PCBs contained in capacitors.
This list clearly shows how important it is to recycle an old refrigerator and not just put it into a landfill as a whole. Almost all of the materials contained in a refrigerator including the metal cabinet, the plastic liner, the glass shelves, the refrigerant, the oil in the compressor and the blowing agent can be recycled.
