White Goods

A new Federal Law affects the disposal of “White Goods” containing CFC refigerants. Items such as refrigerators, ice makers, window air conditioners and freezers contain CFCs. The following steps are necessary to dispose of “White Good” items.

  • Contact a local appliance service center that can provide CFC removal.
  • The technician should tape evidence of CFC removal from the appliance.
  • Contact Rumpke at (513) 742-2900 and request a CFC removal application.
  • This application must accompany the certificate of CFC removal from certified service center.
  • Place “White Good” item on curb with proper documentation of CFC removal for regular trash pickup.
