CFC RECOVERY APPOINTMENT REQUEST

The Department of Sanitation provides free curbside removal of appliances containing chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) gas, such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, water coolers or dehumidifiers. Before any appliance containing CFCs is discarded, callers must make an appointment to have the Department of Sanitation remove the CFCs and tag the appliance. Only tagged appliances will be picked up. As a safety precaution, hinges and locks must be removed from refrigerators and freezers.

Appointments can not be made anonymously.

This service is not available to commercial addresses. Businesses must hire private carters to dispose of appliances and CFC appointments made by a business may result in a Notice of Violation being issued.
