ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), partnering with USA Refrigerants, launched a new program to help its contractor members recycle refrigerants while recouping some of their costs. The ACCA/USA Refrigerants “R-22 Buyback Program” is designed for the cost-conscious and forward-thinking mechanical contractor. According to the association, “The program works because it 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 cylinders, allowing contractors to recover at any rate.

Upon reclamation, the contractor receives a complete Environmental Protection Agency (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 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.”
