Appliances may be recycled for scrap metal. Some appliances contain refrigerant gas that is hazardous and must be removed by a trained technician. For non-working appliances, always remove the doors before disposal to protect against entrapment. Appliances must have all food and other debris removed.
For disposal and recycling, check with your waste hauler, check the Yellow Pages under “scrap metal,” or donate working appliances.
Appliances include refrigerators, freezers, laundry machines, washing machines, dehumidifiers, air conditioner units, dishwashers, water heaters etc. Small appliances may be disposed of as electronics.
