Why Recycle? 

Efficiency Smart's Appliance Recycling Rewards program ensures that your appliance is properly recycled, helping to prevent hazardous material from entering a landfill. Properly recycling old units also permanently removes them from the electric grid, helping to reduce demand in your community.
