Californians: Don’t leave your money sitting in a can.


In California, you pay a $10 deposit when buying auto refrigerant. It’s up to you to get it back.

You might not even realize you paid it in the first place. Ten dollars isn’t chump change. It’s your incentive to return the can and have it properly disposed.

Getting your money back is easy. You may not need your receipt. It’s your money! Get it back.

The More You Know:

  • First, DO NOT empty the can into the air. The whole point is to keep refrigerant out of the air until it can be handled by professionals.
  • Take it back to the store where you bought it from.
  • Simply go to a register and tell them you’d like to return the can for your $10 core charge. They’ll know what to do. Then you walk away ten dollars richer.
