Air Conditioners

Air conditioners, both window units and installed, contain Freon, a substance which can contaminate the groundwater and is poisonous to humans and pets.

It is illegal to place air conditioners in the trash. It is also illegal to cut a freon line and evacuate this substance onto the ground.

Recycling:

Air conditioners, refrigerators, dehumidifiers or items with refrigerant are accepted at both of the Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful Recycle Centers. There is a $20 fee for the removal of the refrigerant by a licensed professional. Cash or debit/credit card is preferred.
