David Keeling, Regional Sales Manager for the East Coast, ARCA Recycling, discusses the process used to recycle appliances.

When an appliance stops working and cannot be repaired, most people can simply place it at the curb or let the delivery crew take the old one when the new appliance is installed. As recycling professionals, we need to think through the appliance recycling process to determine what system is best for our constituents, our community and the environment.

This webinar will discuss the process used to recycle appliances in most areas of the country and the components that need to be properly managed by the company processing the appliances from your program.
