On-Site Refrigerant Recovery & Cylinder Service

Chicago is famous for its green river, green roofs, and picturesque architecture. At Rapid Recovery, we’re not just ‘green’ on St. Patrick’s Day—we’re ‘green’ all year! We provide services that help protect our environment and keep our city beautiful, all while ensuring our customers across Chicagoland comply with EPA and local regulations. 

Simplify & Speed Up Your Refrigerant Recovery Process

Our unmatched recovery speeds bring fast and comprehensive recovery to your job-site or business. Our EPA-certified Field Service Technicians are extensively trained to recover every pound while ensuring A-Gas' high standard of safety, quality, and excellence. 

We Buy R22 & More!

After we recover refrigerant from your system or cylinders, you can choose to keep your refrigerant or use our buyback program, where we'll purchase your CFCs, HFCs, or HCFCs.

Many refrigerants are valuable even when dirty, recovered, wet, burned out, and oil saturated. We ensure you get every dollar you deserve with our refrigerant testing.

Refrigerant prices can change fast. We’re on it and pay you our best price every time—without you having to ask.

Risk Free

Our buyback program has NO:

  • Shipping fees – We do not charge freight to ship your refrigerant. We’re local and provide on-site cylinder or system recovery. 
  • Reductions – We don’t reduce your refrigerant value for normal oil, moisture, acid (burnout), or particulate quantities. We pay full price even when mixed with up to 3% other refrigerants.
  • Liability – You have no risk of “back billing” for mix because we test on-site. You have no EPA risk because we take your EPA liability for every pound we handle.

At Your Shop Cylinder Service & Exchange

Already recovered your own refrigerant? We will come to your shop and test, weigh, and empty the recovered refrigerant from your recovery cylinders. When we are done, your cylinders will be in a deep vacuum with fresh tank tags, ready for reuse. Everything is done right on-site with an instantaneous turnaround.

If instant isn't fast enough, our exchange service might be right for you. Our team can swap your recovery cylinders for ours. No worries if your cylinders are expired; we only provide clean, in-date DOT recovery cylinders.

"You guys are the best, and the fastest reporting company I’ve ever seen. A great pleasure dealing with professionals like yourselves. Field tech (Robert) was a great guy and very hard worker.”
