Recycle Large Appliances


Large metal appliances

But NO

  • Largely plastic items
  • Dishwashers with a plastic tub are accepted--also at the Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center--as non-compactable garbage.

Large appliances are accepted at the Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center in the Bulky Materials Recycling area. Have your load checked by the attendant before unloading.


  • There is a $5 per item handling fee for large appliance
  • *Refrigerant containing appliances must be inspected by a licensed HVAC technician who will remove the refrigerant and tag the appliance. If you bring such an appliance in without a tag, we can provide the inspection/refrigerant recycling/tagging service for a fee of $35.

Recycle Small Metal Appliances


  • Small appliances primarily made of METAL go on the Scrap Metal pile at the Drop-off Center.
  • Small appliances primarily made of PLASTIC are no longer recyclable.

But NO:

  • Please throw away removable parts not made of metal (i.e blender pitchers, microwaves turntables, power-tool cases).
  • Electronics are collected separately. Click here for more information on recycling electronics.

Small metal appliances are accepted at the Drop-off Center.


  • There is no charge to drop off small metal appliances at the Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center.
  • **A refrigerant-management fee applies to air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and mini fridges. See below.

Recycle Refrigerators, Freezers, Air Conditioners, and Dehumidifiers



  • Refrigerators
  • Beverage Coolers
  • Water Coolers (i.e. Culligan, Absopure)
  • Freezers
  • Air Conditioners, AC Units
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Any other refrigerant-containing device

At the Drop-off Center on Pleasantview Road


Fee: If your item has not already been “tagged” by a certified refrigeration technician–as required law before recycling or disposal–there is a
fee of $35 to cover this service.

We contract with a certified technician to come to the Drop-off Center and inspect/service a couple dozen of these appliances at once. They remove the refrigerant from OR confirm the lack of refrigerant in the units and “tag” them all. We provide this service because it is very expensive to have a refrigeration tech come out to deal with one or two appliances, and that's IF you can get on their schedule. Removing the refrigerants is an important step which protects the ozone layer and is key to slowing or reversing climate change.

Collection Service and a Rebate May Be Available to You!

Have a working but unwanted refrigerator or freezer? As part of their efforts to conserve energy, the area’s electricity providers offer rebates for recycling working older refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, and/or air conditioners. Last we checked, the rebates were $50 for the larger appliances, $15 for the smaller with a limit of three per year. They will even pick up from your home! Call your electricity provider for details.
