Appliance Recycling

appliance expire too

Recycle your old fridge or freezer for free!

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. Recycle it for free—and get a $50 rebate plus four new LED bulbs.

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

Five steps to arrange your safe, no-contact pickup

  1. Call to schedule your pickup appointment.
  2. On the day of your scheduled appointment, move your refrigerator 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 and without entering your home.
  5. You receive your incentive check by mail.
