WHITE GOODSThe Illinois EPA prohibits the disposal into landfills of any items that contain chloroflourocarbon (CFC) refrigerant gases and other environmental contaminants. These items are termed "white goods" and include refrigerators, washers & dryers, freezers, air conditioners, dishwashers, furnaces, etc. Residents must call Groot at 888-485-0900 48 hours in advance and advise that the white good is being placed for collection. The cost of this removal is $40.00 per white good. The charge for removal is the cost associated with bringing the appliances to a facility to have the contaminants removed.
