1000 Flowers for the Planet - #600 Recycle Your Fridge
It is possible to recycle your fridge, rather than send it to landfill. Some areas have buy-back programs such as the one at http://www.fridgebuyback.com.au/ covering a lot of New South Wales. But even if you can’t gain a few dollars for your old fridge, there are places who will take that old item, de-gas it and recycle much of the materials. If we don’t participate in this type of recycling, we create fridge graveyards that leach toxic chemicals into the land where they are washed by the rain into our drinking water. Is that a good enough picture to help you choose to recycle your fridge? Give it a go and help the planet.
