Our core business is our curb-side pick up program which is designed to support
our retail partners.
Energy conservation has become
one of the most important issues facing us throughout the United States, and in
fact, the entire world! Partnership programs with utility companies have developed a unique approach to dispose of older "Energy Hog" refrigerators
and freezers. The Department of Energy statistics show that 12-14% of homes have two
or more refrigerators and or freezers and over 50% of the second refrigerators are
more than 10 years old and use 2 to 3 times more electricity as newer models.
Most consumers don’t realize that the money that they spend by buying refrigerated
or frozen goods in volume is wasted on the cost of storage.
Many of the existing recycling programs used today usually only deal with the Freon
used as a refrigerant and the metals within the unit.
The compressor contains contaminated oils as well as either CFC-12 or CFC -134A.
CFC-12 or CFC-134A is evacuated and recycled. The starting device may contain PCB’s
that are classified as hazardous waste. All metals are separated and recycled as
are the plastics and glass. More importantly, the refrigerator/freezer typically
has large amounts of CFC-11 in the foam insulation which needs to be properly recycled
rather than land filled.
