Expect a good price, excellent service, and we will recycle it for you. But first, let’s make sure the old fridge really is a goner. Follow these five simple steps:

1. Check the plug and circuit box to make sure your fridge is getting power.

2. Check the thermostat to make sure you didn’t accidentally bump it into the off position.

3. Make sure the vents in the back of the fridge or freezer aren’t blocked.

4. Ensure your condenser coils—at the back of, or underneath your fridge—are clean. You can use a coil brush or a vacuum to clean the coils.

5. Ensure that the condenser fan spins freely. If your condenser coils are on the back of your fridge, you won’t have a fan.

If the fan doesn’t turn, unplug fridge try to clean the fan blades. Then plug in the fridge and watch to make sure that the fan spins when the compressor turns on. If the fan doesn’t spin, you need to replace it. The parts run from $7 to $30 for most models.

Atlanta Refrigerator Disposal

There’s a company in Atlanta that operates a “free” appliance recycling drop-off facility. What’s free is the ability for you to drop off your washers, dryers, stoves, refrigerators and freezers. If you are dropping off dishwashers, microwaves, hot water heaters, lawnmowers or other metal grills you have to pay five dollars per appliance. If you are dropping off water coolers or air conditioners you have to pay $10 per appliance.

The business hours for drop-offs a Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4:30 PM. On the surface this might seem like a pretty good deal but there is no mention of exactly how you’re supposed to get those items over to this facility. This calls into question the idea of “free” recycling. Would you have to rent some sort of U-Haul truck or van to carry out this mission? You might also have to hire some additional help. Because the center is only open during the week you’ll have to sacrifice work hours to get this job done. It’s easy to see how this “free service” could become a very costly affair. There is a better way.

That better way would be hiring professional junk haulers like Junk King Atlanta to take care of your personal junk removal. You don’t have to worry about whether or not your appliances will be recycled properly because they will. Junk King Atlanta prides themselves on being able to go green which means they are well versed in the proper recycle and disposal programs located throughout the Atlanta area.

You can also maximize the use of this junk hauling crew by turning the removal of your old refrigerator into a total junk removal for your entire home. This would be the perfect occasion to rid of some other bulky items you have been hanging onto for no good reason. This could be old furniture, mattresses, auto parts or anything else that’s taking up valuable space around your home. The professional junk haulers don’t care what you ask them to take away; they are happy filling up their truck anyway they can.

Of course, if you’re getting rid of your old refrigerator that means you’ll be replacing it with a newer model. This will give you the opportunity to purchase a more energy-efficient type of refrigerator that will help reduce your monthly electric bills. There might also be an opportunity to receive a rebate for turning in your old refrigerator. When you upgrade consider adding some special features that you’ve gone without such as an ice dispenser or special chilled containers. Your new refrigerator should last you anywhere between 5 to 8 years so spending a couple extra dollars now will be paid back in the long run over the course of time. If you time it right the same day that you schedule Junk King Atlanta to remove your old refrigerator and other items will be the same day that the new refrigerator shows up. This brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “out with the old in with the new!”
