About Large Appliance Recycling
Before we talk about how to recycle large appliance, let’s make clear what are
qualified as large appliances. Typical ones include washing machines, refrigerators,
air conditioners, clothes dryers, hot water heaters, microwaves, ovens, stoves, freezers
As an individual, you don’t need to do anything to the appliance yourself for most of
these appliance contain some hazardous fluids or parts. These need professional
people with certificate to remove. Then how do they recycle these large appliances?
Now I will take these three main kinds, refrigerators, washing machines and air
conditioners for example.
For refrigerator, they first need to safely dispose of toxins and ozone-destroying
chlorofluorocarbon(CFC-11) gases from foam insulation. After that, all the plastic,
metals and glasses in the fridge can be recycled. In one refrigerator, approximately
150 lbs. of metal, 25 lbs.of plastic, 3 lbs. of glass can be recycled. If they have a lot of
metals and need to save space, metal crusher is a good helper.
Unlike refrigerators, washing machines do not contain hazardous chemicals that make
them challenging and expensive to break down. Meanwhile, washing machines are
made almost entirely of metal and plastic. The body is made with steel.The recyclers
can use simple tools to get these metal. As for further processing, Whirlston metal
recycling machines can provide you various choices.
Another that has the same great value with refrigerator and washing machine is AC
unit. It also contains hazardous chemical like freon, so the recyclers must make sure
they have the qualification to do it. No matter for window AC units or larger AC units,
they are worthy of taking apart. After taking out several screws, the whole thing will
basically apart. One of them is AC radiator. It is completely made up of copper and
aluminum. Whirlston radiator recycling machine is a very suitable choice. The
operator just needs to cut the clean radiator neatly into 30-40cm wide, and then puts
into the material inlet. Within seconds, copper pipes and aluminum fin will be
discharged separately. Copper pipe will keep complete, while aluminum fin will be a
little broken for one-row radiator and keep complete for two-row radiator.
