Recycle Your Appliances
We pick up your old refrigerator or freezer and you get $50!
Efficiency Smart™ can help lower your monthly energy bills — and pay you to do it! Right now, you can receive $50 to recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer. Plus, we’ll even pick it up, free of charge, and properly recycle it. While that old appliance in the basement or garage may provide additional storage, it’s not worth the additional cost on your electric bill. By recycling your old appliance, you can save up to $200 a year on your energy bill. We make it easy for you to save the environment and your wallet.

Inside Your Refrigerator
With Efficiency Smart’s Appliance Recycling Initiative, over 95 percent of the appliance is properly destroyed and recycled, preventing it from entering a landfill.
Save Energy and Money
Each old refrigerator or freezer requires an average of approximately 1,500 kilowatt-hours (kwh) to operate annually. If a spare refrigerator used in a basement or garage is removed and not replaced, energy savings can amount to 1,500 kWh/year, with an average $200 reduction in annual electricity charges.*
*Actual energy and cost savings will vary by equipment model and region. These estimates are conservative and based on national averages. Visit the ENERGY STAR Refrigerator Retirement Savings Calculator to see how much money your appliance costs to operate.
