Recycling pays off

Ditch the fridge, get a cool $50

Hanging on to an old fridge or freezer? It may be collecting more than just dust. According to ENERGY STAR®, keeping a second fridge in your garage or basement could add up to $80 a year in unnecessary energy costs—and even more if it’s an older model.

Luckily, our $50 recycling rebate makes it easy and rewarding to say goodbye. Just schedule your free fridge or freezer pickup and we’ll come haul it away to be responsibly recycled. Plus, you can also get $10 for each working dehumidifier or room air conditioner.

With in-home and curbside pickup options, there’s no cooler way to get $50.

Benefits of recycling your fridge or freezer:

  • Save space and energy.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Safely dispose of hazardous materials.
  • Save more than $220 in lifetime energy costs by replacing it with a new ENERGY STAR certified model.

Small appliance recycling drop-off events

If you have a working dehumidifier or room air conditioner you’d like off your hands, register for one of our small appliance recycling drop-off events. We’ll mail you a $10 rebate for each one you drop off and make sure to responsibly recycle it.

You can also join the waitlist to be the first to know of any upcoming drop-off events near you.

Replace, recycle and receive $100

We also offer rebates for new ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators, meaning you can get a cool $100 in combined rebates when you replace and recycle your old one.

Here’s how:

  1. Purchase an ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator.
  2. Apply for a $50 rebate.
  3. Schedule a free pickup to recycle your old fridge and get another $50.

    Any rebates on washers and dryers. What about picking up a working dryer if Habitat for Humanity can’t use it.
