*It is very dangerous, and illegal to discharge the refrigerant into the atmosphere. If a line is cut either on purpose, or even accidental; the $15.00 fee will still be charged because the proper documentation for removal will not be available. Below is an excerpt from the EPA.

Refrigerators, freezers and air-conditioning units contain refrigerants that damage the environment. Synthetic greenhouse gases (SGGs) are now widely used as refrigerants in fridges and air-conditioning units. Under the Climate Change Response Act (CCRA) 2002 it will be illegal to release SGGs into the atmosphere from 1 January 2013.
