Questions from previous customers:

Q, I have an old commercial fridge that doesn’t work. Can I dispose of it?
A, You cannot take your commercial fridge to your local refuse dump. They will not accept it. The refuse dump will only accept domestic fridges. Your commercial fridge has to be recycled. Also, it is classed as environmentally hazardous, because it contains harmful chemicals which need to be dealt with correctly. The government has set guidelines on disposing refrigeration equipment, which have to be followed.

Q, Will you take my old fridge?
A, No, we can’t offer that service, as you have to transport your fridge to an official commercial waste company.

Q, Where can I take (dump) my old commercial fridge?
A, If you are based in London, you can take your old commercial refrigeration equipment to:
