If your cooling appliance no longer works, do not just leave it on the curb. There are over 260 free drop-off locations throughout Quebec so you can recycle it properly.
Because a refrigeration appliance generates on average one ton of GHG!
If an appliance is not recycled properly, then the gases and hazardous materials it contains are not disposed of correctly… and subsequently released into the environment.
Halocarbons are greenhouse gases with substantial environmental impact that contribute to climate change.
GoRecycle is the only organization recognized by RECYC-QUÉBEC to manage the recycling of these appliances.
In Quebec, we estimate that over 300,000 appliances per year are recycled without properly disposing of hazardous materials.
