Recycle your old Refrigerator and make money too!

I can't tell you how many homes I have shown where they have this junker refrigerator hanging out inrefrigerator recycling the laundry room or garage!  If the refrigerator is over 10 years old it is pretty much useless to the new owner & you should dispose of it & get some money to boot.


How about recycling that second, old refrigerator and receive $50!   It could also help you save up to $150 a year in electricity. Make your appointment today.

You can also call 855-433-2700 between 7am-8pm M-F and 9am-5pm Saturday.   (It's easier to just schedule online - that's what I've done & it's more convenient).

Let ComEd recycle your old, working fridge in an environmentally responsible way. We will haul away that old energy hog for FREE and give you $50. We’ll take working freezer and room air conditioners too.

Hello Lyn, Good point and make some money at the same time.  More should do this.

Older appliances do use a lot more power.  I had the power company try and tell me I should buy a new one.  But when I checked all I was saving was $25 a year.  The new fridge would be worn out and I still would not have saved enough to pay for it.

I have such a hard time letting go of what isn't broken.  My home frig is fairly new and efficent, but I have one at my office that needs to be replaced.  But it still works.

Great share of info, Lyn Sims ... just a win-win all around.  Remarkable what an older appliance can eat-up in electrical costs each year ...

This is great information for area folks who have a refrigerator that has outlived its usefulness.

Hi Lyn. Thank you for your post. Going to check  but I am pretty sure that they do not recycle refrigators in South Florida and they end up in the dump. When I teach, I tell everyone that my electric bill was reduced in half when I purchased an new energy efficient model. (When I moved in there was an old one courtesy of the 1970's in a lovely mustard color.)
