Appliance Recycling Rewards
Are you upgrading an old appliance? Do you have a secondary fridge or freezer adding to your electric bill and taking up space in your home?
Efficiency Smart will pick up and pay you $100 for each eligible Refrigerator, Freezer, Dehumidifier, or Window Air Conditioner responsibly recycled.
In addition to the $100 reward, not running your old appliance can also reduce your electric bill.
Schedule a free pick-up of your appliance and our contractor will do the rest. Your appliance will be removed and responsibly recycled, and your $100 reward per unit picked up will be processed—all without you having to lift a finger.
Refrigerators and Freezers:
Refrigerators and freezers must be between 1-30 cubic feet, be in working condition with functional cooling, and empty at the time of pick-up.
Dehumidifiers and Window Air Conditioners:
Dehumidifiers must be at least a 15 pint model to qualify. There are no size requirements for window air conditioners. All units must be in working condition, removed from the wall or window, unplugged, and placed near an outlet so the working condition can be confirmed at the time of pick-up. These can be picked up without a refrigerator or freezer request.
Request an Appliance Pickup
After you submit your request, we will follow up with you regarding available pickup times in your community.
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.
