To remove and dispose of a refrigerator, either use a professional junk hauling service, or make sure you have enough help to safely transport the appliance. When disposing of appliances such as refrigerators, you must follow certain additional steps to avoid risks to the environment and comply with the law.
Full-sized refrigerators are heavy appliances that may require a trained crew to transport safely. Older refrigerators contain hazardous refrigerants and other chemicals that may be harmful to the environment. When disposing of these appliances, comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules, and take the refrigerator to a properly licensed handler of hazardous waste appliances for safe disposal.
