Recycle Your Old Air Conditioner

The scrap metal around your house can be easily recycled. Instead of paying to take it to a rubbish collection point or having it sit idly around your home, let the team at Jacobo & Son take care of it for you.

Air conditioning units are difficult to get rid of due to the internal toxic gas and the complicated mixture of scrap metals used in their construction. At Jacobo & Son in Osborne Park, we have the expertise to recycle the different scrap metals in your air conditioner unit, including copper, brass, aluminium, and more.

Recycling Your Electric Motors

In addition to your old air conditioning units, we also accept a range of white goods, heating and cooling equipment, and kitchen appliances that rely on electric motors, including:

  • Washing machines
  • Dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Refrigerators (both commercial and residential)
  • Freezers (both commercial and residential)
  • Air handlers
  • Heat pumps
  • Water heaters
  • Small appliances and white goods

Electric motors work by converting electrical energy into mechanical energy, generating a rotational force that powers most modern machinery and appliances. These motors are graded in a specific way and are usually priced by how much they weigh.

Understanding the Grades of Electric Motors

There are six grades used to determine the worth of scrap electric motors:

  1. Contaminated electric motor scrap – these motors contain excessive levels of wood, metal and plastic
  2. Electric motor scrap – standard motors that are free of contaminants
  3. Transformers – a motor that can regulate the voltage of powered equipment
  4. Compressors – these pressurise air to power air tools and turbines
  5. High-grade electric motors – alternators and starter motors from cars and trucks
  6. Copper recovery – small, copper-wound electric motors

Materials Accepted

We accept a wide range of materials at our recycling centre including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, old appliances, car engines, radiators, air conditioning units and more.
