I put my refrigerator on the curb for bulky pickup, but it has not been picked up. Why not?
are mostly metal and it is recommended they are recycled locally instead of
landfilled. There are metal recyclers in Lewisville that accept drop offs.
They can be found on our recycling page under the "recycling resources" tab.
Because of laws regulating freon, Republic Services will not pick up your refrigerator unless it has been tagged “freon removed” by a certified technician. Appliance repair shops offer this service. You will have to check the Yellow Pages or Google to find a certified appliance technician to do the freon removal. Once the freon has been properly removed and the refrigerator tagged, Republic Services will pick it up as bulk waste. But remember -- it is better to recycle appliances than to send them to the landfill.
