Did you know? Appliance Recycling in 1997 yielded more than 2.3 million tons of steel – enough to build 88 new professional baseball stadiums.
Appliances that can be recycled include microwaves, garbage disposals, dishwashers, and air conditioners. Large appliances like refrigerators, stoves, freezers, washers, and dryers can all be easily recycled. If they are still working, consider making a donation of these items to places like Goodwill or the Salvation Army. They can often re-sell them, with the profits going towards the charity. It is very important to note that items like freezers and refrigerators as well as certain air conditioners contain CFCs, which can be harmful to the environment
