Air conditioners

Disposal options

Air conditioners are banned from landfill disposal in Vermont.

They are accepted year-round at all CSWD Drop-Off Centers.



$15.00 for residential & commercial units


At our Drop-Off Centers, appliances are processed to remove hazardous materials. Once processed, the units are recycled.

If you have an air conditioner or other freon-containing appliance that’s too big to remove from your location, call a local appliance repair company or HVAC (air conditioning) service company. They may be able to remove the freon for you so that a hauler can cut up the appliance for removal. Do not attempt to remove freon yourself. Freon is toxic, and is subject to specific removal regulations.
