When it's time to replace an old refrigerator or freezer, it's important to make sure it's properly recycled. Most home improvement stores and dealers are capable of taking your old appliance and recycling when you buy a new one from them. If you need to dispose of one yourself, it's key to do it right, especially if the appliance was made before 1995 -- freezers and fridges manufactured prior to 1995 contained a type of insulation called CFC-11, which is an ozone-depleting substance. To find a disposal site, visit the EPA's Responsible Appliance Disposal site at epa.gov.
