Recycling is Good for the Environment

Recycling your older, working appliance will help you reduce energy use and costs while taking the appliance off your hands in a way that’s good for the environment. The units are sent to a recycling facility where 95% of the material is recycled, and hazardous waste is disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.
