Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) is a rapidly growing industry. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects a 15 percent increase in jobs in HVAC by the year 2026.

HVAC is an important part of residential houses, apartment buildings, retirement homes, hospitals, skyscrapers, hotels, office buildings, marine environments, and modes of transportation. These systems contain furnaces, boilers, heating pumps, radiators, A/C units, metal pipes, and ducts—all of which you can recycle at Metro Recycling.

Metro Recycling serves both consumers and HVAC contractors with opportunities to recycle scrap from HVAC repairs and replacements. Bring your HVAC recycling materials to one of our three locations: Valparaiso, Griffith, and Blue Island.

Recycle your HVAC Scrap with Metro Recycling

If you are recycling your own air conditioning unit, you will need to provide an original receipt or other documentation.  If you are a contractor recycling a customer’s material, Metro Recycling may request a letter from the company to prove ownership of material was transferred on your HVAC card. If this is the case, the letterhead must contain:

  • Transfer of ownership must be printed on an official company letterhead (nothing handwritten)

  • Authorized name of the customer who will be delivering material

  • Authorized material that is being sold

  • Name, telephone number, and signature of company representative that has given the customer authorization to sell material.

Metro Recycling has the right to contact the authorizing company to validate letterhead accuracy. Read more about how to recycle with Metro.

It's very useful post and it can help homeowners to get rid of HVAC scrap easily without wandering here and there. I also took help from an expert who works for AC Repair Riviera Beach firm to eliminate HVAC scrap from my home. They easily eliminated the scrap and installed a new ac unit in my home.
