Let us pick up and haul away your old refrigerator or freezer for recycling—at no additional cost to you—and get rewarded!

  • $50 reward for recycling an old, working refrigerator or freezer.
  • $25 reward if you also recycle an old, working room air conditioner or dehumidifier at the same time as your refrigerator or freezer.

What Is a No-Contact Pickup?

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, to ensure the safety of customers and contractors, we’re only collecting appliances from designated locations outside of customers’ residences, including garages, porches and outbuildings. No-contact pickups will enable our staff to collect and recycle your old appliance(s) while you remain safely inside your home. During your no-contact appliance pickup, our team will be wearing personal protective equipment, including masks, safety glasses and disposable gloves.

To learn more about no-contact pickups, check out our FAQs.
