March 18, 2020 - Out of the concern for the health and safety of our customers and program partners, IID is suspending the Refrigerator Recycling Program. Please check this webpage regularly for further updates. Thank you.
IID can help lower your monthly energy bill - and pay you to do it! Right now, you can receive $50 to recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer. Plus, we will even pick it up free of charge and properly recycle it.
While your old, inefficient appliance in your garage may provide extra storage, continuing to operate inefficient appliances costs you money and generates excessive greenhouse gas emissions. By recycling your old appliance, you can save an average of $270 over five years on your energy bill.* Properly recycling old electrical appliances permanently removes them from the electric grid, conserves resources and helps protect the environment.
How to Participate
- You must be an IID residential electric customer and owner of the refrigerator or freezer.
- Your appliance must be in working order (cooling) and be between 10 and 27 cubic feet in size.
- Your appliance will be picked up at no charge from the address listed on your billing account.
- The $50 reward will be mailed to you approximately 8 to 10 weeks after pickup of your refrigerator or freezer.
- Limit two appliances per household, per year.
Call 1-855-291-9580 or sign up online today to schedule your refrigerator or freezer pickup.

Inside Your Refrigerator
With IID's Refrigerator Recycling Program, over 95 percent of the appliance is properly destroyed and recycled, preventing it from entering a landfill and harming the environment.
IID has partnered with Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA) Inc., to perform the “appliance recycling services designed to guarantee that every appliance collected through energy efficiency programs is fully demanufactured. This includes ensuring all hazardous materials and components are removed, stored, transported and disposed of in a responsible manner in accordance with federal, state and local rules and regulations” (Source: ARCA, Inc.).
