Refrigerator/Freezer Recycling Rebate


Recycle and Save

Get paid to save energy. Recycle your old refrigerator or freezer and receive $35. Plus, we'll arrange to have it hauled away for free.

While refrigerator and freezer efficiency has improved over the last 20 years, many old units are still in use, straining the power grid and your monthly utility bill.

This program makes it easy to reduce energy use, be environmentally responsible and have an old, bulky refrigerator removed at no cost.

Note: Appliance removal and recycling must be coordinated through Utilities in order to receive a rebate. Utilities partners with Exodus Moving and ARCA Recycling to ensure recycling complies with federal, state and local regulations.
