What to do with your unwanted home appliances?

Your washing machine and refrigerator have spent a good ten years serving your needs. There are other appliances too that’s been around, slowly stepping into old age. You could do with a set of new machines around the house. But, how do you know it’s time to buy new appliances and what do you do with the old ones?

Signs that show your metal appliances are young no more

An old washing machine displays these old age signs:

  • It makes loud noises when its drum is in motion during the spin or wash session.
  • It uses too little water indicating a leakage .
  • It uses too much water, indicating that water isn’t draining.
  • The machine uses up multiple cycles for washing rather than one.

An old refrigerator displays these old age signs:

  • When water leaks from underneath due to a leak in the water connection.
  • Water is leaking inside the fridge due to a plugged drain pipe.
  • The refrigerator is not cooling anymore due to dust accumulation or a blocked air vent.

What you should look for in Aluminium

At Metal Force Recycling, we offer an aluminium scrap price for up $0.80 – $1.30. The production of fresh aluminium requires more power and extracting tools for natural mining of ores.
