Residents can contact a certified appliance dealer to remove the Freon from the appliances who will then issue a receipt to provide to your municipality for pickup of the appliance. There maybe a charge for this service. Consult your Yellow Pages for dealers who provide this service. Municipalities and private haulers will not collect appliances containing Freon unless a receipt is presented that the Freon was removed. Contact your local public works office for more information.
Another option is to contact NJ Clean Energy Program. This state program offers you an incentive of $50 for your old refrigerator or freezer and is removed from your home for free. This program recycles 95% of the appliance and is limited to removal of two units per household. For more information please call 1-877-270-3520 or visit their website at http://www.njcleanenergy.com
