Landfill Policy: Acceptance of refrigerators, freezers
and air conditioners
Items containing pressurized refrigerant require State certified
removal of refrigerant prior to ultimate disposal.
The City will accept refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and
other items designed to utilize pressurized refrigerant at the
landfill under the following conditions:
1.) Any person (individual or commercial hauler) bringing such a
device to the landfill for ultimate disposal must declare the item at
the scale house upon entry.
2.) If the device does not have an affixed tag certifying that the
refrigerant was removed by a State certified person, the City will
accept the device upon payment of a disposal fee of $25.00.
3.) AND a weight fee (minimum weight fee is currently $5.)
4.) If the device's refrigerant has been removed, but has no tag
certifying that the refrigerant was removed by a State certified
person, the disposal fee is $25.00 plus the appropriate weight fee.
5.) The device may be weighed with other acceptable refuse delivered
by the hauler, but the device must be easily separable from the other
6.) The hauler will be directed to deposit the device at a specific
location at the landfill. No other refuse may be deposited at that
spot, but must be first unloaded into the proper dumpster. The hauler
must unload the device and stand it neatly in the proper area (no
dropping or tossing).
The disposal fee is designed to cover the cost to the City of extra
handling and storage of the device, and to pay to have a commercial
State certified refrigerant remover properly remove the refrigerant
and certify the device. The City will then haul and dispose of the
device in the proper place in the landfill.
