Appliances that do not contain Freon, but do not function, can be taken to the Recovery Yard or Drop-Off Station. With these appliances, you do not have to pay the extra fee like Freon appliances require.
These appliances are safer to handle than Freon appliances, but still make sure not to take them to the dump. RAA divisions have the necessary facilities to break down the appliances and recycle as many of the component parts as possible.
Live Zero Waste!
Always try to repair appliances before disposing of them. Staples and Best Buy also offer tech-trade in.
Do any other places accept broken appliances without Freon?
Staples and Best Buy do! Check their websites before you go, just in case.
