White Goods Collection and Disposal Services

About Our White Goods Removal Service

Almost every home in the country will have at least one white good, as they are required for various domestic activities such as cooking, cleaning, and preserving food. However, because they are used so frequently, they are prone to breaking down, in which case they must be recycled and disposed of legally and responsibly.

If you find yourself in this position, we are on hand to help you. We provide dependable, professional, and efficient white goods clearing services throughout London, ensuring that your bulky white goods are responsibly collected, transported, and recycled.

Why are they called white goods?

White goods are big electrical appliances that are generally found in the house. They got their name since these enormous electrical appliances could only be purchased and bought in the colour white, or coated in white enamel, in the past.

Today, you can get them in a variety of colours to match the decor of your house, and the phrase is used to refer to any sizeable electrical home appliance, regardless of colour.

What can we collect?

We can handle any electrical waste, including all sorts of white goods, thanks to our highly competent and experienced furniture disposal specialists and our extensive selection of vans.

Online, no-obligation quotes icon.

Even though white goods are tough to dispose of, we go above and beyond to recycle as much as possible. White goods can harm the environment if they are disposed of inappropriately or left in landfills because they contain many metals and poisonous gases.

To avoid this, our waste management professionals dismantle and recycle electrical rubbish separately from regular household items

Frequently Asked Questions About White Goods Removal Services

What’s the difference between white and brown goods?

Household white goods include bigger appliances such as washing machines, stoves, refrigerators and other similar items. 

On the other hand, brown products are smaller and generally simpler to move and include laptops, computers, radios, and televisions. Both brown and white products can be classified as WEEE waste, and our staff will collect them for you if you choose.

Is it necessary for me to defrost my refrigerator or freezer before you remove it?

To remove a fridge or freezer, it is necessary to know how to prepare it for removal. Your white goods must be defrosted before our collection since they may leak during travel if not. 

You can defrost your freezer by doing the following:

  1. Using old newspaper and towels to wrap around the freezer to soak up any water that may leak from the melting ice. During the defrosting process, they may need to be replaced regularly.
  2. Switch off the freezer and take everything out of it, including frozen food, drawers, and shelves.
  3. Allow plenty of time for it to dry and air out completely.

Because we cannot remove and dispose of any freezer if it is not empty and defrosted before pick up, we will be unable to collect your freezer if it has not been defrosted beforehand. In this instance, you may still be liable to pay the call-out charge. 

Is it possible for me to dispose of my old refrigerator at the tip?

Fridges must be disposed of with care due to their components’ nature and the possibility that they may release dangerous gases, so just taking them to the tip without prior research may not be as straightforward as it appears at first. Click here for more information on whether you can take your old fridge to the tip

What is the law regarding the disposal of white goods?

Several laws govern white goods disposal, including the Waste (Household Waste) Duty of Care (England and Wales) Regulations 2005, the Removal of ODS-EC Regulation, and the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Regulations, all of which make it more difficult to dispose of white goods lawfully.

We’re knowledgeable of these white goods disposal laws and regulations, so you won’t have to worry about conducting your own research or incurring a fine when you book with us. 

Is it possible for the council to take my old white goods?

Some local councils charge a fee for special collections of large items, such as white goods. 

However, owing to a lack of resources and a strong demand for their services, it may take far longer than employing a professional garbage removal firm to do the work.
