Montgomery County residents can dispose of old appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, water heaters and stoves for free during Appliance Amnesty Weekend.
Drop off dates and times are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Montgomery County Solid Waste District Transfer & Recycling Facility, 1001 Encrete Lane in Moraine.
Refrigerants such as Freon will be properly disposed of by a licensed technician on site. Metal components will be recycled rather than placed in a landfill.
Montgomery County Environmental Services offers special disposal programs to prevent illegal dumping, promote recycling and to protect soil and waterways from pollution or contamination. For more information, call 937-225-4999 or visit www.mcswd.org.
Microwaves, small countertop appliances and outdoor grills are not part of this program but will be accepted for a nominal fee.
