Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Info and Report

The City of Palo Alto Utilities has been one of the voluntary partners in the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) since 2007.

The program is a voluntary partnership program to help protect the ozone layer and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. The RAD Program recognizes partners that ensure the disposal of refrigerant-containing appliances using the best environmental practices available.

The RAD program nationwide has resulted in over 500,000 appliances being properly disposed of in 2008 and we are proud to be part of that success!  We continue to participate and hope that 2009 will be equally or more successful.
