When the Lights Go Out on your Appliances

Does recent flooding have you wondering what to do with a deep freeze in the basement that no longer works? Good news! You have options for disposing of appliances like your deep freeze as well as refrigerators, kitchen ranges, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, water heaters, furnaces, thermostats, washers/dryers, microwave ovens, and more!

Before you start loading it up, you have a few options.

  1. Your appliance can be picked up curbside by your garbage hauler:

To do so will require 7 large item stickers. These are available at many locations throughout the metro. When you’re ready to place at the curb, call the number on the sticker to schedule pick up.

  1. You can self-haul your appliance to one of 3 Metro Waste Authority facilities:
    1. Metro Park East Landfill: $15 recycling fee
    2. Metro Park West Landfill: $15 recycling fee
    3. Metro Hazardous Waste Drop-Off: Small appliances only, $15 recycling fee.
