Our staff decommission all refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and water coolers brought in by residential customers prior to disposal. All of these units are stored in a designated area adjacent to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility (HHW). Please remove all food items from inside the refrigerator or freezer before dropping it off.
Disposal of Commercial Units
If a commercial customer brings in any form of unit that originally contained refrigerant, it is required that each unit is certified that it has been decommissioned prior to bringing it to the transfer station.
Commercial customers who bring in refrigerators and/or air conditioning units that have already been properly decommissioned should transport the compressors in separately. The compressors are not a recyclable material and commercial customers will be charged for their disposal.
Certification forms of decommissioning for commercial entities are available at the administration office, scale houses or you can view the policy (PDF).
