Kitchen Appliance Removal
Refrigerators and stoves can weigh as much as 500 pounds, and even if you have a newer, lighter model it probably still weighs over 200 pounds. Even smaller appliances, like microwaves, will probably cause a headache when it comes time for disposal since it's not safe to toss them in common, household waste. Some materials in appliances are harmful to the environment so it's important to recycle and dispose of them properly.
Don't stress about proper disposal or break your back pushing and pulling your old appliances, let us do the work for you. When your fridge or deep freezer are ready to go, book an appointment online or by phone, and our team will be dispatched to remove any junk you need out of the way. They'll arrive with all the tools needed to remove your oven, dishwasher, range hood and trash compactor. No appliance is too big, bulky, awkward or heavy. They'll even take the kitchen sink with them, if you'd like. All you have to do is let us know what you need gone and we'll take care of the rest.
Remove, Reuse, Recycle
We value our community and our commitment to responsible disposal. If your kitchen appliances are usable, we'll take them to a local charity where they can be put to good use. If they can no longer be used, we'll make sure any recyclable materials are salvaged to minimize the impact of disposal and reduce the need to harvest new materials. Harmful chemicals and components are separated and disposed of safely, in compliance with all applicable regulations.
This is especially important when disposing of a fridge or freezer. These appliances use a refrigerant called freon to keep temperatures low. Older model appliances may contain a version of freon called R-12, which is depletes the ozone layer and is extremely toxic. In addition to being more energy effiencient, newer model appliances use tetrafluoroethane (also known as freon) which does not contain ozone depleting substances but is still a potent greenhouse gas.
We work hard to ensure your appliances are safely handled and disposed of to protect our community and the environment. When you use Arwood Waste to remove your junk appliances, you can feel good knowing you've done everything you can to minimize waste and protect the environment.
