Household Appliances

The Recycle Depot accepts:

  • floor-standing Freon appliances, such as refrigerators or freezers
  • small non-Freon appliances that fit on a countertop or in a closet, such as irons, microwaves, or vacuum cleaners

The Depot no longer accepts any floor-standing appliances without Freon. These can be taken to a local scrapyard including Lewis Salvage or Rochester Iron and Metal

There is a fee for removing Freon. It is an extremely hazardous gas that requires special handling.

  • $25.00 each for full-size refrigerators and freezers
  • $10.00 each for smaller appliances such as small dorm fridges, water coolers, etc.
