SCRAP DEALERS/APPLIANCE RECYCLING
The following is a list of some of the scrap dealers in our area. Please contact them to get details on their company and how they handle the disposal of an appliance, scrap metals and Freon based air conditions and refrigerators.
Most refrigerator repair specialists will have the equipment to remove Freon if your appliance cannot be repaired. Additionally, check with your local appliance store about a take back program when you purchase a new appliance.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY will accept working appliances.
What is Freon?
Freon is a refrigerant that is common in a variety of homes as well as commercial and industrial appliances. Freon is technically a brand name belonging to the company DuPont, but is often used as an all-encompassing term for HCFC refrigerants. HCFC gets its name because the refrigerant is a combination of hydrogen, carbon, fluorine and chlorine. The most common HCFC is currently R22, sometimes referred to as HCFC-22. However, it is in the process of being phased out and will eventually be prohibited entirely, because of its ozone depleting properties.
We accept appliances with and without freon at both of our Collection Facilities.
