At AO Collects, we can dispose of your old or broken Ammonia fridge responsibly. All you need to do is add this service to your basket, choose a collection date and we’ll pop round to pick it up - just make sure you’ve emptied it of any leftovers or old yoghurts before our drivers turn up. We will then recycle it to the highest possible standard at our incredible state-of-the-art facility. So not only is it an absolute doddle to get rid of your old appliance, but you can rest assured knowing you’ve done your bit to protect the planet from harmful waste too.
Dometic ammonia fridge degassing machine
Designed and patented by the world’s largest manufacturer of ammonia fridges, Dometic, our machine can safely and cleanly remove ammonia gas from unwanted fridges which have reached end of life.
Once we've taken out this harmful and dangerous gas it will be disposed of in safe manner using a regulated approach.
Then the old fridges are deposited into our dedicated fridge and LDA shredding machine where they are smashed into their constituent metals, plastics and insulation foam.
These materials are then sorted at the plant and will eventually go on to be reused in other products. It’s a closed loop system which boasts industry-leading materials recovery rates. Nothing is wasted and the process ensures harmful substances are not released into the environment.
