I'll fess up and admit that I am not a professional, but I did read the rules, so I won't ask about cost and/or diagnosis and/or howto.
However, I am interested in the professional consensus on if an R22 recovery fee is charged by service providers. I have used a reputable company for years, and he said the charge is totally bogus and is just used to pump up the cost. For reasons I won't go into, I am being forced to use a different company to do some work, and they charge the fee (which is not insignificant). I was reading around online - and it looks as though wholesellers are starting to pay to get the stuff back. What's the deal?
[edit: In retrospect - unfortunate thread title. Duh. I'll take flames like a man.]
