AAP's Recycling Promise

Services provided by AAP will meet or exceed the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program. Through the program, RAD partners commit to using best practices to recover ozone-depleting chemicals, including those from polyurethane foam insulation, and other harmful materials from old refrigeration appliances upon disposal.

The cutting-edge technology utilized by AAP processes refrigerators and freezers to reduce the units into streams of fine and uniformly sized granules of recoverable materials, including copper, aluminum, steel, plastics and de-gassed polyurethane foam pellets. This full-cycle, RAD-compliant process not only has an enormous impact on the environment but also provides a steady stream of materials that will be reused and recycled.
