You might not realise it, but getting rid of your old kitchen appliances is serious business. It can be easy to assume that you can just put it out with your rubbish or even just dump it down an alley way somewhere for someone else to take care of – but this could land you into trouble!
Whether you are getting rid of rubbish yourself or you are relying on someone else to do this for you, you are responsible for what happens to it and where it is disposed of. This means that if you (or someone else) do dump it – you could be hit with a hefty fine!
The best way to avoid this is to make sure you use a company that operates under the correct waste transfer rules. You should be given a signed document to say that the rubbish has been taken away and will be disposed of in the correct manner. That way you can feel confident that you aren’t going to get into trouble at a later date!
With kitchen appliances this is even more important because of the potential damage this could have on the environment. Many old appliances have ozone-depleting chemicals in them. When these are left to break down in a landfill they have disperse into the air and have a detrimental effect on the environment. This is why it is more important than ever to make sure your old kitchen appliances are disposed of safely.
Of course, on top of this getting rid of an appliance is hard work. Items like fridges, dishwashers and washing machines are not light. This means that moving them is tough – especially if you have to go up or down any stairs or narrow hallways. Why would you put yourself through this hassle when you can rely on a company to take care of this for you?
