What To Do With Return to A-Z Guide

Large appliances, no Freon, not working

Appliances that do not contain Freon, but do not function, can be taken to the Recovery Yard or Drop-Off Station. With these appliances, you do not have to pay the extra fee like Freon appliances require.


Recycle Right!

These appliances are safer to handle than Freon appliances, but still make sure not to take them to the dump. RAA divisions have the necessary facilities to break down the appliances and recycle as many of the component parts as possible.


Live Zero Waste!

Always try to repair appliances before disposing of them. Staples and Best Buy also offer tech-trade in.
