When fridges and whitegoods arrive at our workshop they are checked to see whether they are able to be repaired using alternate parts to help it run more efficiently. From here there are three recycling options for the fridges:

  1. The fridge is repaired using alternate parts and is sold through selected Brotherhood of St Laurence Community Stores at an affordable price.
  2. The fridge is unable to be repaired and is recycled as scrap metal, or
  3. The team removes harmful CFC gases. For this they may receive Government Initiatives called Victorian Energy Efficient Certificates (VEECs).
