Eligibility

To participate in the Refrigerator Retirement Program, you must be:

  • a Manitoba Hydro residential customer;
  • the owner of the appliance;
  • over the age of 18.

To qualify for a pickup, refrigerator(s) and/or freezer(s) must be:

  • in working condition (capable of cooling);
  • at least 15 years old;
    • Most refrigerators and freezers have a manufacturer’s sticker on the back or inside at the bottom portion of the ledge by the door. The date is usually included in the numbers written on the sticker.
  • approximately 10 cubic feet or larger;
    • To determine the size of your unit, measure and multiply the depth x width x height (in feet) of the fridge compartment and the freezer compartment. Add the 2 numbers together to give the total size in cubic feet. Example:
      • fridge compartment: 2.1′D x 2.2′W x 3.1′H = 14.32 cubic feet;
      • freezer compartment: 2.2′D x 2.0′W x 1.0′H = 4.4 cubic feet;
      • 14.32 + 4.44 = 18.76 cubic feet total.
  • located at your primary service address in a single family dwelling. Seasonal residences, condominiums, apartments, and businesses do not qualify.

Up to 3 appliances per residence will be accepted.
