Power Smart Refrigerator Retirement Program
Running a second fridge or old freezer that’s more than 15 years old can use between 1,000 and 2,000 kilowatt-hours per year — costing you $100 annually on your energy bill. Participate in our Power Smart Refrigerator Retirement Program and we will pick up your second refrigerator or your freezer for free, recycle them responsibly, and give you $50 for each one we collect.
This program offers an easy and convenient way to get rid of your second fridge, save you money, and ensure your appliance is recycled responsibly.

Learn about why you should recycle your old fridge and what happens to it after we pick it up.
