Large Appliances, Banned from Illinois Landfills
KNIB will take your old appliances whether large or small.
Items such as stoves, washers, dryers, microwaves and other appliances may be safely disposed of as scrap metal.
Appliances with Refrigerant
Appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and dehumidifiers contain Freon, a toxic substance which can contaminate the groundwater and is poisonous to humans and pets. It is illegal and dangerous to expel Freon from appliances onto the ground. Licensing is required to remove hazardous substances. A $20 fee is charged to remove the refrigerant by a licensed contractor.
