    AC's and whatnot

    So I have picked up a few AC's, Dehumidifiers and refrigerators over time, but tend to pass them by. Why you ask? Don't want to deal with the Freon removal. A couple weeks ago I picked up 3 Dehues from a client and decided to do a tiny bit of homework. Come to find out my preferred yard discharges the Freon at no cost and still pay shred for the rest of the unit. Sure, I know there are better ways to maximize profit on these units, but the way I see it, my profit is up because now I will be shipping off Refrigeration units. Pays to ask questions.

    I think (and hope) you mean they recover the Freon. Bit of a difference there.
