What would not be a good way to dispose of an old fridge?
A. Leaving it by the side of the road B. Take it to the local recycling centre C. Telephone the council for it to be picked up and recycled D. Give it to a scrap metal collection service who would recycle it
The correct answer to this question is A, Leaving it by the side of the road. When it comes to disposing of appliances, they should always be recycled. Being that a refrigerator is large, it takes up space in the landfill. If one recovers it, it can leave the landfill open for items that are unable to be recycled.
Another reason why it should be recycled is that refrigerators have toxic materials. Those materials can get into the soil and end up in the water. Along with refrigerators, other appliances that need to be recycled are microwaves, washers and dryers, ovens, and air conditioners.
