Recycling air conditioners is a problem many people have in Jonesville MI and all around Hillsdale County. They are not trash and cannot be put out to the curb for the waste management company to remove. The transfer station does not want them either. The big reason: because of the active freon gas that is dangerous to the environment when placed in a landfill. Once the gas is removed, the unit will be taken. But few people are trained or have the equipment to safely dispose of the gas. A little research led me to the Jonesville American Legion Post. They take scrap metal and appliances and raise funds by turning them in to recycling companies. They safely remove the unwanted items at no charge and safely remove the freon gas from air conditioners.
