EPD Encourages Appliance Recycling Over Dumping
This information is from the Eureka Police Department’s facebook page:
Did you know the Eureka Recycling Center takes most appliances for FREE? No need to illegally dump in front of our beautiful bay.
Appliances without Freon are FREE to dump
appliances with Freon cost $20.00
TVs and Computers cost $2
Mattresses are FREE to dump at the HWMA transfer station
Tires can be dumped for FREE with a coupon
Also, don’t forget that Recology Humboldt County provides 2 FREE bulky item pick ups per year per customer. Just call to schedule.
Furthermore, Recology Humboldt’s website says Eel River residents can also recycle their appliances at both the Fortuna and Redway transfer stations. Recology’s website describes how the appliances are used,
Recology Eel River is a licensed appliance recycler. We remove any hazardous materials from the appliances before they are baled and shipped to market. Major appliances or “white goods” (clothes washers/dryers, refrigerators, ovens, water heaters, air conditioners, etc) become valuable sources of scrap metal when they are no longer wanted.
