Responsible Commercial & Residential Appliance Recycling in the South Puget Sound Area
One of the most difficult things about buying a new refrigerator, stove or washing machine is figuring out how to responsibly get rid of the old one. Bulky, heavy appliances can be a major chore to remove from your property, but the right appliance recycling company can provide the solution you need.
Appliances in Landfills are Harmful
Refrigerators, freezers, air conditioning units and dehumidifiers contain dangerous HCFCs (hydrochloroflourocarbons), which are potent greenhouse gases and are believed to deplete the Earth’s ozone layer. These appliances, along with others such as ovens, stoves, washers, dryers, microwave and other appliances also contain mercury in electronic circuitry, which should also not be released into our environment.

Rain City Recycling recycles and reclaims almost any type of household appliance in the south Puget Sound region.

All are then responsibly processed, including correctly handling refrigerants, foams, oils and circuits that may contain harmful chemicals and metals.
