State law prohibits the landfill disposal of discarded appliances due to the fact that they may contain hazardous material such as Freon, PCBs and/or mercury.
What is considered an appliance? For the purpose of proper disposal, “appliances” are devices such as: refrigerators, freezers, kitchen ranges, air conditioning units, dehumidifiers, gas water heaters, furnaces, clothes washers, clothes dryers, dishwashers, garbage disposals, trash compactors, microwave ovens, commercial coolers, etc.
The Boone County Landfill accepts used appliances (i.e., refrigerators, stoves, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, microwaves, etc.) and ensures that they are properly recycled. The BCL charges for each appliance delivered to the landfill. Appliances delivered to the Landfill must comply with the Covered Load Policy and originate from within the Landfill’s primary service area.
Other options exist. Please check the Green Pages for more information.
The Landfill charges a processing fee to handle appliances. Click here for a list of landfill fees.
