Appliance Recycling

Get a rebate when you recycle the old

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. During the same appointment you can also recycle an old, but working, window air-conditioner and/or a dehumidifier. Recycle for free and receive a rebate plus eight new LED bulbs!

Beginning January 15, 2023, appliance pickups will be available from May 1 to September 30 only.

$50 Refrigerator: 10 to 27 cubic feet in size
$50 Freezer: 10 to 27 cubic feet in size
