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 refuse.

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.
