Appliance Recycling & Disposal


Appliances like washers, dryers, ovens, refrigerators, and dishwashers are large and bulky. They should be recycled because they take up a lot of room in our already-crowded landfills. Furthermore, tossing big items like these limits thespace that could be used to store non-recyclable materials.  

Please check with each location for drop off dates, times and restrictions
