Fridge Collection is Sheffield ( Legal Disposal)

Fridge Collections In Sheffield

Fridge collection in Sheffield and disposal of fridges in the Sheffield region comes with a certain element of problems and cost. This is down to a few different factors but the main ones are the gases in the copper canister at the rear and the insulation that is used within the fridge unit.

If i leave them outside will the scrap man take them?

The short answer to this is no as their is no benefit other than the copper pot on the back for the scrap man. Hence why you see so many at the road side with the copper pots chopped off. It is also you legal resposibility to ensure all your white goods including fridges are collected and disposed of correctly.

Fridge Recycling Process.

Fridges are transported via a conveyor belt through a sluice with a double door system. The sluice works as an air locked entry gate for refrigerators. After passing through the airlocks, fridges are loaded into a two shaft shredder where the units are pre-shredded. The material then enters a hammer mill which reduces its size to circa. 50mm fragments and the PUR foam is separated from the other materials.

Foam and plastics are separated using a ZZ separator and the foam is then processed through a shredder, autoclaves in series, and press to produce briquettes, releasing the CFCs and other gases from the foam. The entire plant is operated under negative pressure with nitrogen used throughout the process to reduce oxygen content to prevent any fires or explosion. Gases released during the process are diverted to the solvent recovery unit (Activated Carbon) where they are captured.

The recovered material outputs from the process include: Ferrous metals, Non-ferrous metals, Plastics, Gas, Cables, Glass, Oil, Compressors and Foam briquettes.

I needed my garage cleaning and found these guys on the internet. It was a great service from beginning to end. Tom who answered the phone was very polite and accommodating to my needs. I work shifts so I explained to Tom that it needed the rubbish collecting after 11 and before 1 due to my shift and sleep patterns! We arranged a time off 11.30, the lads who did the job turned up on time as agreed and were polite. They were real hard workers and cleared the garage in no time at all. All in it was a really professional and efficient service. I would definitely use them again and recommend to friends.

Highly recommended. Having been let down by Veolia, who wouldn’t pick up the rubbish, supposedly because of access to my property, I was delighted that it was no problem for this company. Tom very trustworthy and straightforward on the phone. They did exactly what they said they would do and for a very fair price too.

These guys were brilliant. They were very fast and efficient at replying to my initial query, quoting and carrying out the job (garage clear out ready for house move). I can’t really say if their prices are comparable to others as I’ve not used a company for this before but I thought they were reasonable.

Had these guys clear an outbuilding and despite them charging per hour, they were like machines and got the job done in no time! Cheaper than we have had previously - by a marginal amount granted, but their service was far superior, so all in all very competitive! Turned up exactly when arranged, extremely pleased with them and would DEFINITELY use again!!

Excellent service, quick and efficient nothing was too much trouble. Arrived on time professional and courteous. This was a house clearance after our tenant left the property in a disgusting state, the guys cleared everything saved us time in getting the property back on the market and money and effort in having a skip. Great job highly recommend.

I had no trouble booking a slot when I needed and the guys turned up exactly on time. They were cheerful, friendly, speedy and belpful. So much better than hiring a skip. Everything was gone within fifteen minutes. Would definitely use again and thoroughly recommend.
