Description EPA's Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program is a voluntary partnership program to help protect the ozone layer and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Partners recover ozone-depleting chemicals from old refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers. In addition to public recognition, joining the program may also serve as a way to document climate efforts, and may help partners meet any voluntary commitments or pledges they may have to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
