Around here we used to take that stuff to the metal scrappers but with the high price scrap now brings. Just take the doors of and set on the curb on trash day and it magically disapeers.

Rivet Fate of the Fridge

After trying to dispose of it for quite a while, everything came down to, Can you assure me that there is no ammonia in it? I dont know what to do about the ammonia.

I picked a windy day, stood upwind, and cut a tiny slot in the lowest point. What ammonia was there dissipated in the stiff (away from the Airstream) breeze. Since anhydrous ammonia is used in fertilizers, any vapor that landed on the lawn should really be a good thing, right? With the hole in the pipe, I could positively demonstrate that the system was empty.

When I got to the landfill, nobody even checked. The good news is that it was free!

Sorry,

Another member asked me for parts, and I still need to box up the bulky things like the shelves and crisper bins. I Priority Mailed the heating elements because he was going camping and need them quickly. The bulky stuff will go more economically. To be honest, I forgot about everything down on the bottom before disposal.

One thing, though, make sure your connections to the thermostat are corrosion free. I had problems with my 67 Trade Winds fridge and it turned out to just be corrosion. A little cleanup and it is fine.
