We’ll pick up and recycle that old energy inefficient refrigerator or freezer and reward you with $50 for the first unit picked up and $35 for a second unit, if applicable.

Getting rid of that old refrigerator or freezer typically saves several hundred dollars over its useful lifetime. By recycling your old appliance you’ll also ensure that it doesn’t end up in a landfill or wasting energy in another home. We also encourage you to dispose of your primary refrigerator or freezer when you purchase a new energy-efficient model.

Please make sure the unit is plugged in and working (cooling) at time of pickup. The contractor will not pick up non-working units.

Before taking the appliance out of the house, they will disable it (cut the cord) to ensure it can't be used again. The contractor is responsible for any damage incurred in taking the appliance out of your home.
