Fridge dies, recycling in progress:

Being somewhat of a packrat, salvaging light bulbs, fan motors, etc from our newly deceased side by side, remembered that old recycling standby. The bottom shelf is big enough to hold a gallon can of mineral spirits.

Always a great idea to "reuse" piece parts into a new life where possible! You may have started a trend that will have others looking for old side x side doors/trays. Thanks for sharing, and be safe.

Great idea. I've thrown away a few refrigerators in my life ... never once thought of taking the shelves out.

Come on 'fridge ... Die Already !!!

Good idea! I have seen were some have turned them into a kiln for drying green wood.

Also used a couple of the more or less square bins for containers on my rolling shelves. The rest of the bins/drawers were scrapped. I found that it is quite difficult to break one, so I wound up using a jig saw with a fine tooth blade to cut out a bunch of clear panels. Lexan perhaps? Cuts nicely, quite strong.

How long did it take to recycle all the beer in the fridge before it got warm?

Cut it twice, measure once and it's still too short.
