Fridges and freezers are classified as hazardous waste due to the ozone depleting gases they contain and therefore cannot be disposed of within general waste streams.

Businesses or individuals requiring a local fridge or fridge freezer disposal point within the Bournemouth and Poole area can use Canford Recycling Centre, which is a fully licensed site for the disposal of fridges and fridge freezers.

For disposal in Somerset clients can use our Southwood Recycling Centre which is close to Shepton Mallet.
