Appliances Containing Refrigerant:

The contractor will collect such items as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, water coolers, etc.; however, the item must have a sticker certifying that refrigerant has been removed. If it does not have the sticker, it will not be picked up because it is unlawful for the contractor to dispose of these items containing refrigerant. To save refrigerant removal costs, it is suggested that residents have the company delivering the new appliance dispose of the old appliance.
