such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, water coolers,
or any other appliance containing refrigerant
will only be picked up if the item
has a sticker certifying the refrigerant has been removed. If there is no
sticker certifying removal, the item will not be picked up due to laws
prohibiting disposal without certification that the refrigerant has been
removed. It is suggested that you have the company delivering the new appliance
dispose of the old appliance to save on the removal cost of the refrigerant.
