When referring to white goods we usually mean refrigerators, freezers, stoves etc. These devices certainly make our lives easier and save time. Unfortunately they break or grow old and we do not need them in our houses because they take up too much space. What do we do when we want to get rid of the old and useless white goods?
The first thing that comes to mind is to sell them. That in case they still work and can be used again. You can sell them online in Ebay or a website selling old goods. Or find a neighbour or friend who needs them. Or if you want to do some charity, you can always give them to someone that cannot afford to buy a new one. Either way your old white goods will be used again.
Another smart decision is to call a second hand dealer. They will be glad to accept your old white devices to repair them and resell. Sometimes you do not have time and it is easier for you to buy a new device but in fact, a lot of them can be repaired and used again. Of course, if you care about the environment and do not insist to follow the fashion, you could get your old white goods repaired. In this way you will add a few years more to their life and protect the environment from more landfill waste.
If your old white goods are out of order, though, and you do not need them anymore, call a rubbish removal company that offers white goods removal service. They will dispose the unwanted items for you. Not all the landfills accept white goods so it is always better to use a company to do that, instead of wasting time and money to do it yourself.
Recycling old white goods is an excellent solution to your problem. It is absolutely ecofriendly. Appliances consist of two-thirds of steel that can be scraped and used for other products. Smaller devises like irons and toasters, could also be given for recycling if they contain a large amount of metal.
There are many people who are keen on reusing old items, including white goods. If you are one of them, and your imagination is rich, you can think of various ways to transform an old oven into a flower stand. Or your old fridge could become a decorated drawer for your art materials like paints, decoupage papers, brushes, etc. You never know if the trash from your , for example, office clearance is not a treasure for someone else.
Whatever you decide to do to get rid of the old white goods, be aware if your actions are ecofriendly. Do not forget that except the steel and other reusable materials in the devices there is remaining waste that is toxic. If you cannot reuse the appliances or give them to someone who needs them, make sure that the company that will dispose the devices will do that properly. Of course, the best you can do is recycling. We are responsible for the world we live in!
