The Clean Air Act of 1990 requires recapture recycling and safe disposal of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) used in air conditioners refrigerators and freezers as coolant. Under the Act no one may accept an item containing CFCs and HCFCs for recycling or disposal unless the Freon contained within it is properly removed and the owner and hauler appliance company can show proof of proper removal. It is also unlawful for any person to knowingly release or vent CFCs or HCFCs into the air. The EPA requires certification for all technicians removing Freon as of November, 1994.
If you need to handle Freon, you need to be certified. Bay State offers a one day Freon Recovery Seminar followed by the certification test. Hundreds of students have taken the seminar and tests with excellent results.
