RAD: RESPONSIBLE APPLIANCE DISPOSAL

HOW IT WORKS:

THE INDUSTRY WAY

Today most used refrigerators are processed at a location where the product is sent through a shredder. As the refrigerator goes through the shredder, the insulating foam from the walls and doors is crushed, and greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere. About 55 pounds of a typical refrigerator ends up in a landfill.

THE SPICHERS WAY

Our new approach saves approximately 47 pounds of material from a recycled refrigerator that would typically go into a landfill. Learn more about the RAD way:
Refrigerator Pick-up
The used refrigerator is picked up and sent to a dedicated ARCA (Appliance Recycling Centers of America) recycling center.
Remove Greenhouse Gases
The greenhouse gases from the foam are captured in a sealed system. Approximately 95% of the insulating foam is recovered, compressed and can be used as fuel.
Remove Refrigerants
Refrigerants and recoverable components are removed before the refrigerator is processed. This initiative will reduce the weight of typical refrigerator landfill waste by approximately 85%.
Recycle
The remaining metals, compressed foam pellets, and plastics are separated for recycling.
