Everyone owns them, everyone needs them, and they never last forever. In fact the newer model refrigerated appliances are breaking and failing at an extremely fast rate due to a variety of reasons. The main reason is the appliances made in the last decade are made of materials that are blended for a more cost effective solution in manufacturing. The manufacturers are the only ones winning at this game because the faster their product breaks, the faster the consumer has to run out and purchase another.
So what do you do with that old broken refrigerator, freezer, A/C unit, or even dehumidifier (yes they’re refrigerated too)? You cannot just put them out with your curbside trash because they have to be recycled in an environmentally friendly way. When disposing of these items you can bring them to the county landfill yourself, wait in line and kill half the day just to pay the $25 recycling fee at the end. Another option is to hire a professional junk removal company to remove them from within your home and let them handle the rest. This will generally cost anywhere from $100-$150/unit but its as close to magic as possible-all you have to do is point and they disappear!
