We collect and recycle virtually every kind of appliance. Using various local contractors we transport all appliances off Orcas to be recycled as scrap metal. We pay to have them removed, and thus we charge for the service. Refrigerated appliances cost more because a trained technician must remove the components containing Freon, a chemical hazardous waste.
We use various vendors to take our appliances off island to be recycled. Like all of our recycling programs we do this at or near cost because it’s the right thing to do!
