About Refrigerators

Are Fridges Worth Money In Scrap?

Although you could make more cash from taking the important metals out of your refrigerator, some of us do not have the time. Scrapping your refrigerator as is will still get you extra cash with the current Refrigerators Scrap Prices. You can find copper pipe, wire and sealed units inside refrigerators. Prices for refrigerators will vary at different scrap metal yards.

What Are Inside Of Refrigerators?

There is a lot of different items that make up fridges, here is a quick list of what is inside of an average one:

  • Insulation- all refrigerators have some type of insulation to keep all of the cold air in and not have the electric motor constantly running.
  • Sealed Units– These are the units that have to be drained of the oil and freon by industry professionals so they are recycled and reused the right way.
  • Copper Wire- Whether it is the plug that goes into the wall or some wires that connect basic circuitry inside, always watch out for it.
  • Light Iron (Tin)- most household refrigerators have light iron that compose the outside, sometimes they could be stainless steel as well, make sure to use your magnet.

Have A Fridge That Needs To Be Picked Up?

If you need to schedule a pick up for your refrigerators the iScrap App has a container request form to do so. If you are unsure of where to bring your old refrigerators the iScrap App can help you find a scrap metal yard near you accepting refrigerators. When you figure out the scrap metal yard you would like to go to, you can also find out their pricing for refrigerators. Instead of throwing your old refrigerators away, scrap them for cash.
