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.
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.
