How to Dispose of Refrigerant Containing Appliances

Your conundrum: You have a RCA to dispose of. What to do?

If the equipment is not moveable (that is, it’s attached to/part of the building, like a walk-in environmental chamber), create a Work Request by calling Plant Operations Call Center (POCC) at 7-2059. If the equipment is moveable (refrigerator, freezer, cooler) here is how to be rid of it and comply with EPA and UM rules.


FOUR STEPS TO DISPOSE OF A REFRIGERANT CONTAINING APPLIANCE

Step 1: Prepare Forms and Documents

Step 2: Having Completed the Forms, Fax or Email Them to Property Disposition

Step 3: Write on the Equipment and Tape Some Documents to it

  1. WRITE the six digit number which Property Disposition will give to you on the unit, preferably in indelible marker.
  2. TAPE the "Authorization to Scrap" form to the unit.
  3. TAPE a copy of the OSEH Decontamination Form to the unit.

Step 4: Get Moving and Trucking to Pick up Your Appliance
