Disposal of Refrigerators and Freezers
November 1, 2003
This policy applies to the University community (administrators, faculty, staff, and students).
Environmental requirements dictate we properly remove the refrigerant and oil from all used refrigerators and freezers before we are allowed to dispose of them.
If a refrigerator or freezer needs to be replaced and the vendor does not include removal of the old equipment, the department must request for Physical Plant to remove the old unit to ensure proper disposal of refrigerant and oil. Physical Plant will charge $150.00 for disposal of each unit.
The Department will request a chargeable work request for Physical Plant Department to remove old units from within their departments.
