You Have Selected Freon / HCFC / Refrigerants

By law, appliances must have hazardous materials removed prior to recycling. Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and water coolers contain ozone-depleting refrigerants called Freon or CFCs (Chlorinated Fluorocarbons). Each molecule of a CFC can destroy over 100,000 molecules of the earth’s protective ozone layer. This material must be removed by a professional. Do not attempt to do this yourself. In most cases an additional fee is charged for these appliances.
