Britain is being submerged beneath a mountain of disused fridges, because no-one knows how to get rid of the coolant without breaking new European antipollution laws. What would you do with it?
I would put all the fridges in a heap in the Tate Modern. They could go next to the glass of water on a shelf or the pile of rocks on the floor. After much hype, they'd probably be awarded the Turner Prize and could be sold off for thousands of pounds (all profits going back to the local authorities).

Ship these fridges to Africa where they can be used to good effect.
Alternatively load them on to a fleet of lorries and take them to Brussels and deliver them to the European Parliament - this should teach these idealistic politicians to think before they introduce unworkable legislation.

The equitable solution would be for central government to provide the necessary funding to local authorities, but not unexpectedly there is a reluctance to go down this route. At the risk of being labelled environmentally unfriendly I would suggest 'disposing' of the fridges at a small number of dedicated incinerators. It's an issue that has to be addressed now, not in the future when technology has caught up.
Whatever the solution it should not entail a direct cost to the public or fly tipping will prevail - this does not preclude a levy on fridge sales and a disposal obligation on the manufacturers.
