Refrigerator Recycling Program

Thank you for your interest in Peninsula Clean Energy's Refrigerator Recycling Program. The program is still accepting orders, but we are not scheduling collections at this time. If you'd like to proceed with placing an order, we will contact you in approximately 1-3 weeks when collections have resumed to schedule your pickup. Thank you!

Got an old refrigerator or freezer hogging energy in your home? We will pick it up for free and mail you a $35 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.
