Recycling & Waste

Air Conditioner

Legal Considerations

It is illegal to place air conditioners in the trash. State law requires removal of hazardous components before recycling as scrap metal.


Bring your air conditioner to one of the recycle companies listed below. Call to verify items accepted, hours and fees.

If you are purchasing a new air conditioner, ask the installer or retailer if they will recycle the old unit.
