Refrigerator & Freezer Recycling

Your inefficient, working refrigerator or freezer may be costing you up to $90 a year in operation costs. If you are looking to replace it or just want to get rid of a secondary unit you no longer need, you can receive a no-cost pickup, have it responsibly recycled, and receive a $75 rebate through December 31, 2024.

Your choice to recycle instead of using other disposal options will help curtail growing peak load demand, prevent the release of greenhouse gases and ensure that over 90% of the unit is being properly recycled by Resilient Buildings Group (RBG)*, our contracted vendor.

How It Works:

  1. Schedule Your Pickup: Have your electric account number ready for verification, and contact RBG to schedule a no-cost pickup by phone at 833-864-1607 or email at
  2. Eligibility: Ensure you meet the eligibility requirements listed below
  3. Receive Your Rebate: Allow 6-8 weeks after pickup for incentive processing
