Recycle refrigerators and air conditioners safely.

The older your refrigerator or freezer, the more electricity it uses and the more pollution it will cause if not treated properly before being sent to a scrap metal yard. Your refrigerator also contains insulating foam and oil filled with highly polluting hydrocarbons.

These harmful substances are released into the atmosphere when a scrap metal yard dismantles your refrigerator just to recover the metal! An improperly recycled refrigerator generates as much greenhouse gas as three tonnes of household waste.

Totally environmental recycler

PureSphera is the only company that captures and destroys 99.99% of the halocarbons contained in cooling appliances, including the insulating foam, which contains up to four times as much gas as the actual coolant coil! PureSphera recycles 96% of the materials in refrigerators and other cooling appliances (steel, aluminum, copper, plastic, oil, mercury, foam, etc.).

Official supplier

PureSphera has been the official supplier for energy efficiency programs at Manitoba Hydro since 2011. Unfortunately, Hydro-Québec’s Recyc-Frigo program no longer exists. Quebecers therefore must urge their municipality to participate in our Freezponsible program.
