    • Small (i.e. household dehumidifiers, mini fridges, window air conditioners) $15

Recycle Refrigerators, Freezers, Air Conditioners, and Dehumidifiers

illustration-dot-dropoffillustration-dot-refrigerant

WHAT

  • Refrigerators
  • Beverage Coolers
  • Water Coolers (i.e. Culligan, Absopure)
  • Freezers
  • Air Conditioners, AC Units
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Any other refrigerant containing device

WHERE
At the Drop-off Center on Pleasantview Road.

HOW

Fee: If your item has not already been tagged by a certified refrigeration technician–as required law before recycling or disposal–there is a fee to cover this service:

  • Refrigerators, freezers, large air conditioners $25
  • Air conditioners (window), dehumidifiers, and mini fridges, $15

We contract with a certified technician to come out and remove the refrigerant from or confirm the lack of refrigerant in a bunch of appliances at once and tag them all. We provide this service because, individually, it is very expensive and difficult to schedule an appointment with a certified refrigeration tech to have your appliance tagged. This is an important step which protects the ozone layer and is key to slowing or reversing climate change.

Collection Service and a Rebate May Be Available to You!

Have a working but unwanted refrigerator or freezer? As part of their efforts to conserve energy, the area’s electricity providers offer rebates for recycling working older refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, and/or air conditioners. Last we checked, the rebates were $50 for the larger appliances, $15 for the smaller with a limit of three per year. They will even pick up from your home! Call your electricity provider for details.
