Hi James,

What do you mean by machine disposal?
Best to sell machines sited as a business.
2nd best sell machines unsited on eBay
3rd break up and sell off as spares.
4th hire a skip!

PS The metal alloy used for the two piece barrels and old coin carriers is called 'Mysak' and is valuabe I got £50 from the local scrap merchants when I brought them in after upgrading my machines.

Thanks.

I’d love to use the skip option for getting rid of ‘expired’ machines, but it’s what to do with the refrigeration units, can’t finf anyone that’ll touch them without £££’s

If they are total scrap then I would always take out the chiller as you can reuse when compressors break on other machines.

STrip for parts and then scrap man, as long as chiller is gone but its usually the foam insulation they don't like.

I spoke with a guy at a company Davis Commercial Services Ltd. The guy was called Touka. Email him on Touka@dcsint.co.uk

Planet Vending wrote an article on them - they recycle electronic goods. When I spoke to them they said if I sent the machine to them then they would recycle for free and provide a certificate of disposal. He even mentioned if loads were sent he could do a rebate. Might be worth grouping together and see if we can get a rebate.
