ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has launched a new program to help its contractor members recycle refrigerants while recouping some of their costs. ACCA has partnered with USA Refrigerants, a leading refrigerant distribution, recovery, and recycling company.

According to the organizations, the ACCA/USA Refrigerants “R-22 Buyback Program” is designed for the cost-conscious and forward-thinking mechanical contractor. The program offers a simple and user-friendly way to effectively recover refrigerants and get paid for it.

Contractors who enroll in the program receive recovery cylinders, and once the provided cylinder is full, it is collected, reclaimed, and replaced. There is no freight cost associated with this program, and there is no time limit on filling them, allowing contractors to conveniently recover at any rate.

Upon reclamation, the contractor receives a complete EPA reclaim report along with compensation based on the market price of the recovered refrigerant.

“Reclaiming refrigerant is the law and it’s the right thing to do,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO. “The USA Refrigerant program allows contractors to recover refrigerant while recovering some of their costs, as well. We’re excited to partner with such a first-rate company to offer this service to our members.”

For more information about this exclusive ACCA program with USA Refrigerants, members should contact Simon Burgess toll-free at 888-468-5250.
