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.
