The whole problem will be if this becomes widespread that good cheap, used, fridges and freezers will be hard to get a hold of for making a kegerator or for lagering purposes.
Some utility companies are paying $50 to pick up the thing.
If some idiot wants a new one they might get rid of it this way. I imagine perfectly good fridges/freezers are worth $50 or more. Some of the subcontractors/employees who will handle the disposal will prolly load up a Ryder Truck and sell them. If they don't they will just go to a landfill.
Landfilling these things is stupid on a whole new level.

I need someplace to put a kegerator before this becomes an issue for me. But, if I could pick up a really cheap, fridge of questionable heritage I might be convinced to do some cleaning in the garage.
Get one or two now. These fridges are more efficient if they are full, so brew often and twice on weekends!
This is your green responsibility.
