Get an Easy $50 for Recycling Appliances!

An old refrigerator or freezer can be a home’s biggest energy waster, costing you more than $80 per year to run. Let us recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer, and we’ll give you $50. Plus, get an extra $25 if you recycle your working room air conditioner or dehumidifier at the same time.

How it Works

  • We’ll pickup and recycle your old, working appliance either from one of the outside designated locations (garage, porches, outbuilding) or from inside your home.
  • Get $50 in the mail for recycling a working refrigerator or freezer, plus no cost for pickup and disposal.
  • Receive an additional $25 when you recycle your working room air conditioner or dehumidifier at the same time.

Recycling your old appliances helps to:

  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Lower emissions of ozone depleting substances and greenhouse gases
  • Prevent releases of PCBs (toxic chemicals), mercury, and used oil into the environment
  • Reduce the need for new raw materials such as steel, aluminum, copper, glass, and plastic
