White goods are amongst the toughest household rubbish items to get rid of. But they’re also a common form of waste – one that we come across everyday. Without a sturdy truck and a couple of sets of hands, getting rid of white goods, such as an old air conditioner, can be quite tricky.
If you’re in need of a fast, efficient rubbish removal service to get rid of an old air conditioner, give us a call today. We’d be glad to help. Let’s take a look at some things you need to remember about air conditioner disposal.
Types of Air Conditioners
We deal with all kinds of air conditioners every day, found in both residential and commercial spaces.
• Window air conditioner: As its name implies, window air conditioners are those are fitted in a window sill or a fit into a dedicated slot in wall. They are commonly used to cool a single room, as they are smaller units with a single box housing all the components.
• Ductless air conditioner: Also known as a “split” AC unit, this air conditioner is made up of two parts: the evaporator and cooling fan in one, and the compressor, expansion valve, and condenser in the other. These are more commonly found in commercial spaces such as hotels and motels, as well as shared living spaces like apartments or condos.
• Portable air conditioner: Similar to a window air conditioner, however, the heat is vented outside via a hose system. They are noisy, but very efficient at cooling rooms.
• Central air conditioning: Central air conditioners are best for larger spaces, where having multiple units would be impractical. Heat is distributed evenly to every area of your home via a network of pipes connected to a central source.
Air Conditioner Disposal Difficulties
Depending on where you live in Sydney, your local city council will have different regulations regarding air conditioner disposal in your local area.
All councils have very strict rules about how and when your fridge is supposed to be disposed of, and many councils require that you dispose of your white goods at a dedicated recycling facility.
These rules can be difficult to navigate and in turn can pose problems if you are in the process of getting a new AC unit and you have limited storage space (heavy fines apply for dumping white goods), or if you don’t have the necessary assets to remove it yourself.
Even if you do have a ute or van, recycling facilities can be difficult to access. Sydney Rubbish Services specialise in the inner city, Inner West, greater North Shore and Eastern Suburbs – areas where recycling facilities are few and far between.
