Appliances are banned from landfill disposal in Vermont. Scrap metal businesses accept appliances. Most towns accept appliances at either town transfer stations or special events throughout the year. There may be a fee associated with removing freon from appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, ice makers, and dehumidifiers. There may also be a fee for disposal of other appliances such as washing machines, dryers, furnaces, stoves, microwaves, hot water heaters, and dishwashers. Please contact your town office for information specific to your town. Goodwill accepts working appliances, or you can contact the Steel Recycling Institute to recycle them (800/YES-1-CAN).
