For a limited time, participants will receive a $70 rebate (reg. $50). To qualify for the promotion, you must schedule your pickup during the month of October.

We will pick up your standard in-home refrigerator and freezer for free from inside your home.

How does appliance recycling impact the environment?

Chances are, the old, energy-sucking refrigerator or freezer in your home is increasing your electricity bill by an average of $150 a year. When you properly recycle it, you can reduce your energy use and keep harmful materials out of landfills.

  • Each fridge recycled keeps over 150 lbs. of material out of the waste stream. Recycling also keeps ozone depleting substances from being released into the environment.
  • Every ton of plastic recycled (approximately 80 fridges) saves 30 cubic yards of landfill space.
  • Each ton of glass recycled saves 5 gallons of oil. Each ton of plastic recycled saves 16 barrels.
  • 95% of the material in fridges and freezers processed in a recycling facility is recycled, or, in the case of hazardous waste, is disposed of in a safe manner.
  • Approximately 140 lbs. of metal are recovered per refrigerator recycled. Fridges contain several different kinds of metal such as light iron, steel, tin and copper.
  • Metal recovered from refrigerators is shredded and melted down so it can be used again and again without much degradation. Recycled metals are used in new projects such as making parts for automobiles.
