Freon represents a variety of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which contain elements such as carbon and fluorine as well as other gases. Freons are colorless, odorless, non-flammable, non-corrosive gases/liquids that are hazardous to the environment.
Appliances containing Freon include some refrigerators, freezer units, water coolers, dehumidifiers, and air conditioners and need to be properly disposed of. A list below provides removal services that will properly extract Freon from these appliances.
