Impact

Beyond the direct environmental benefits of recycling appliances to keep them out of landfills, recyclable materials recovered from the units processed at AAP will create a supply of raw materials for the manufacture of new products.

By recycling the rigid polyurethane foam insulation in one CFC refrigerator, including the foam located inside the doors, through the URT system has the same environmental impact (equivalent emissions) of running a new, ENERGY STAR® refrigerator for 14 years.
