Tip of the Week: Recycle Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer and Get a $50 Rebate

Do you have an old refrigerator or freezer wasting energy? The sponsors of Mass Save® – Cape Light Compact, Eversource, National Grid, and Unitil – are offering no-cost pickup and removal plus a $50 rebate to residential electric customers who recycle their old, outdated, and inefficient refrigerators or freezers through the Mass Save appliance recycling program.

Whether you’re replacing a fridge or freezer and want help safely disposing of the old unit or have an extra fridge or freezer in your garage or basement that you don’t need any more, Mass Save’s appliance recycling program can haul away and recycle that old unit.

In order to be eligible for the program, you must:

  • 1
Be a valid residential electric account holder of one of the sponsors of Mass Save.
  • 2
Refrigerators or freezers must be working, plugged in, clean, and empty at the time of pickup.
  • 3
Refrigerators and freezers must have an inside measurement between 10 and 30 cubic feet, which is the standard size for most units.
  • 4
A maximum of two units per household per calendar year will be accepted.

Ready to recycle? Schedule your NO-COST pickup online or by phone. Have your electric account number handy to avoid scheduling delays.

Not only will you get no-cost pickup, but we’ll give you a $50 rebate for participating in the program.  To qualify for the no-cost pickup and rebate, units must be picked up by December 31, 2017.
This offer is available to residential customers Of Cape Light Compact, Eversource, National Grid, and Unitil.

Isn’t better for the environment to use existing appliances for as long as they work? Actually, older refrigerators and freezers use less efficient technology, which can increase energy costs by up to $100 a year compared to newer models. That means you will save by upgrading or getting rid of an old, un-needed unit. The following infographic shows how all the components of your refrigerator can be recycled:
