Brotherhood Fridges collects broken or unwanted fridges and other white goods from Melbourne households free of charge. These goods are either repaired and sold to low-income households or recycled. You can book a collection from the Brotherhood of St Laurence website.
Whitegoods that are beyond repair can be placed out during the annual hard waste collection. Alternatively contact a scrap metal merchant for drop off and collection options. See the Yellow Pages for local traders.
