Refrigerator Recycling Program

Got an old refrigerator or freezer hogging energy in your home? We will pick it up for free and mail you a $50 check for participating.

By properly recycling it, you'll help conserve energy, prevent potent gases from getting out into the atmosphere, and prevent contaminants from getting into the landfill.
