Also, when you do dispose of them on the street, please remember to take the doors off, so a child doesn't lock himself in and suffocate.

Sadly, this happens alot.

since this is the first fridge i've owned, i never had to dispose of one, but if i wanted to get rid of one in working condition, i would donate it to whatever charity would pick it up. if it broke down, and i wanted to throw it out, i'd call the waste disposal company and arrange for oversized item pick-up. i have never had to do this, but i know that it can be done. i don't know who you think i am, but i don't litter my city-- with big things or small ones. not everyone is a nasty pig, you know.

My 2nd paragraph wasn't aimed at you. I just used your post to mention the issue. I was talking about the pigs around the SFV who dump the fridge on the sidewalk. and They don't take the door off like Marilyn mentions.

This part of the Rent Stabilization Ordinance (which applies to units built before 1978) is one of the most controversial, because if the complaint is found to be legitimate, tenants can expect landlords to reimburse them for the lost service, or in this case, spoiled food. Basically, whatever conditions existed when the tenant moved in must be maintained until he/she moves out. Some tenants have interpreted that to mean cable TV or weekend brunches ...

Default $2 a month more rent for a Refrigerator?

In my city the Housing Authority allows the owner to collect $2 per month extra rent on Section 8 subsidized rents if the owner supplies the refrigerator....
