Refrigerators are disposed of on a daily basis. Think of all the chemicals that would fill our landfills if we neglect our responsibility of proper refrigerator disposal. Our oceans, lakes and rivers suffer the consequences early on due to our negligence. However these horrors then extend unto us in the form of various ailments and diseases. We do not want to be constant victims of our own doing. We have a tendency to believe that things happen without a cause. This is far from the truth and here’s why.
A number of the chemicals used in the manufacturing of fridges are quite hazardous. This is why it is very important to ensure that fridges are disposed of properly. It is important to have an understanding of what these hazardous chemicals are and how they can impact your health. You need to become aware of the refrigerator disposal laws as well as any other information required to help you make a sound decision. This will certainly help you maintain a healthy environment.
Know What You Are Buying

It is for this reason that you know the year your fridge was manufactured, so you can seek ways to minimize the risks associated with exposure to the refrigerant. All fridges should have a plate stating the manufacturer, model, serial number and the type of refrigerant being used. This is important to your overall health. It sure benefits you and your family in knowing what environmental and health risks that exist in your home.
The Facts About Recycling Your Fridge
