Spain’s Guardia Civil posted video of the incident to Twitter on July 31. Officials identified the man — who joked that he was “recycling” when he threw the appliance — from the vehicle license plate captured in the footage, according to The Local.
In another video, the man is seen throwing a washing machine down the same area.
Investigators traced the fridge to a company in the Almeria region, and he was terminated from the company. He was also reportedly ordered to pay a more than $50,000 fine.
The man was also ordered to drag the refrigerator back up the ravine he threw it down — of which Guardia Civil also posted video.
