ARCA’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified technicians are trained to identify hazardous components in all makes and models of the appliances that we recycle.

Technicians remove appliance panels to perform a thorough inspection, ensuring that all harmful components are found and removed. Refrigerants (HFC, CFC, or HCFC), including those used as blowing agents in rigid polyurethane insulation, are collected and reclaimed or destroyed in an environmentally sound manner. Capacitors suspected of containing PCBs, mercury-containing components, ballasts, fluorescent lights, batteries and other materials that can damage the environment are disposed of according to all federal, state and local regulations.

ARCA also recycles metals, evaporators,
fan motors, compressors, glass (whenever
possible), and plastics.
