Recycling & Waste

Heat Pumps


Heat pumps are considered a major appliance, and must be processed to remove hazardous materials before being recycled for scrap metal.

Legal Considerations

It is illegal to place heat pumps in the trash.


Contact your trash hauler for curbside pickup options.

If you are purchasing a new heat pump, ask the retailer if they will recycle your old heat pump when they deliver the new one.

Bring it to one of the recycling companies listed below. Call ahead to verify items accepted, hours and fees. There is no guarantee materials will be accepted.
