This program is to prevent illegal dumping, promote recycling, and protect soil and waterways from pollution or contamination.

Licensed technicians will remove any refrigerant, such as Freon, and metal components will be recycled rather than placed in a landfill. Microwaves, small counter top appliances or outdoor grills aren’t a part of this free program, but can be taken for a nominal fee.
