Montgomery County is hosting an Appliance Amnesty weekend, allowing residents to dispose of old appliances for free. Montgomery County Environmental Services offers special disposal programs to prevent illegal dumping, promote recycling, and protect our soil and waterways from pollution or contamination.
Residents can bring their appliances to the Montgomery County Solid Waste Transfer Facility, where licensed technicians will remove any refrigerant, such as Freon™, free of charge. Metal components will be recycled rather than placed in a landfill. Microwaves, small counter-top appliances or outdoor grills are not accepted as part of this program, but these items will be accepted for a nominal fee.
You can drop off your appliances at the Montgomery County Solid Waste Transfer Facility this weekend:
- Friday, June 8 6 am to 8 pm
- Saturday, June 9 8am to 3 pm
It’s easy! Just click the button below or call 877-889-4765 to schedule your free pickup.
A representative will haul away your old appliance for FREE, take it to be recycled, and you will receive your rebate payment.
Did you know? An older model refrigerator or freezer can use up to 5 times as much electricity as a new, more energy efficient model. Removal could save you up to $150 annually. Get more energy-saving tips for appliances.
