Are they in good condition or are they condemned ? As u will probably no they have thermal bricks in them which i presume need to be took out and the metal recycled. As for disposal try a scrap man/woman.

Old ones will probably have asbestos in them.I did it myself,the asbestos was in a flat plastic bag,if you are carefull taking the thing apart and do not burst the bag double wrap it in heavy duty polythene bags and High Green dumpit site will take it.The removal is easy,mine had a screw either side so the front can swing down remove the top and then the bricks (very heavy).The asbestos is behind the bricks.Wear a mask and carefully remove the asbestos.Finally take the unit off the wall.Takes 30 -40 minutes if that.

This site will tell you if your model contains asbestos. That pad isn't necessarily made of it.

As above, easy to take apart and remove bricks and then quite light to take to dump for metal recycling.
