Why Should I Recycle

Large appliances contain recoverable metals and getting them back into the supply chain reduces the need for new raw materials. Also, many large appliances contain refrigerants: a group of chemicals that collectively are called ozone-depleting substances. By responsibly recycling your large appliances, you ensure that any ozone-depleting substances will be handled and disposed of carefully by licensed professionals.

There are certified drop-off sites that accept major appliances all across BC. There is no charge when you drop off your appliance at a MARR collection site and you can rest assured knowing your large appliances will be recycled responsibly.
