Refrigerator and Freezer Recycling

No-cost removal plus limited-time $100 rebate

Recycle Refrigerators and Freezers - Get a $100 Rebate

Do you have an old refrigerator or freezer wasting energy? Residential electric customers who recycle their old and inefficient refrigerators or freezers through the Mass Save® appliance recycling program will be offered no-cost pickup and removal – plus, for a limited time, a $100 rebate. This $100 rebate is double the traditional rebate value of $50 per unit, and is made available through the electric sponsors of Mass Save, including Cape Light Compact, Eversource, National Grid, and Unitil.

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 no longer need, Mass Save’s appliance recycling program can haul away and recycle that old unit.


The following eligibility requirements apply:
  • 1

    You must be a valid residential electric account holder of one of the electric sponsors of Mass Save.

  • 2

    Refrigerators and 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

    You must call to sign up between May 14, 2018 and July 31, 2018, and the unit must be picked up by August 31, 2018 to be eligible for the $100 rebate. This special offer, which was originally scheduled to end on June 15, 2018, was recently extended due to high demand. If you place an order after this period but before January 1, 2019, you will still be eligible for the standard $50 rebate. (*Note: if you are an Eversource residential electric customer, please visit, as the timeline for this special offer will vary.)

  • 5

    A maximum of two units per electric account per calendar year will be accepted.

Why Recycle Your Unit?

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. Plus, participating in the Mass Save appliance recycling program ensures your unit is responsibly recycled. The following infographic shows how various components of your refrigerator can be reused:
