Large appliances, or “white goods”, refer to any bulky metal, or partially metal, item that uses electricity or gas.

Most of these appliances can easily be recycled and have the toxins safely removed (Freon from refrigerators).  Some retailers provide removal and recycling service with a purchase of a new large appliance.  If that’s not the case, then you can take any of these items to one of the drop-off areas listed below.

  • A/C units
  • Dishwashers
  • Dryers
  • Heaters
  • Refrigerators (with and without Freon)
  • Stoves and Ovens
  • Washing Machines
  • Water Heaters
