Appliance Recycling

Recycle your old fridge or freezer and earn a rebate!

An old fridge uses about three times the electricity of a new ENERGY STAR model and could be costing you an extra $120 a year. If you have an old, but working, fridge or freezer, we'll clear it out for you. In 2021 you also can recycle an old, but working, window air-conditioner and/or a dehumidifier. Recycle for free and receive a rebate plus eight new LED bulbs. 

Rebate  Appliance
$50 Refrigerator: 10 to 27 cubic feet in size
$50 Freezer: 10 to 27 cubic feet in size
$25 Window air-conditioner
$10 Dehumidifier

For your health and safety, we're conducting appliance recycling pickups through a no-contact process during COVID-19

  1. Call or schedule your pickup appointment online.
  2. On the day of your scheduled appointment, move your appliance(s) to your garage, driveway, porch, or an outbuilding.
  3. Print and sign your release form, and leave it inside the appliance.
  4. An ARCA Recycling, Inc. crew will arrive to pickup the unit without any physical contact or entering your home.
  5. You receive your incentive check by mail!
