California Consumer Information

Do you re-charge your own car’s A/C unit?  Take this short survey, ARB wants to hear from you.

We need your help! Do you re-charge your automobile air conditioner using small containers (10 to 22 ounces) of automotive refrigerant? If so, please assist us by completing this brief survey at the link below:

This survey is anonymous (unless you choose to provide contact info) and will be used to help us evaluate consumer behavior surrounding an ARB-implemented deposit, refund and recycling program for small cans of refrigerant.  This program was implemented as part of the Regulation to Achieve Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions from Small Containers of Automotive Refrigerant.
