What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Appliances, Freon, not working

Appliances containing freon must be handled appropriately in order to be recycled. Freon must first be safely drained and disposed of, in order to recycle the other materials. Due to the necessary specialized care in order to recycle, an extra fee of $28 per freon appliance will be charged.  Examples of freon appliances: air conditioners, refrigerators, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers.

As of now we do not require the removal of doors from fridges and freezers.
