No-cost removal plus a $75 rebate

Recycle Refrigerators and Freezers - Get a $75 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, a $75 rebate. This $75 rebate is made available through the electric Sponsors of Mass Save, including Cape Light Compact, Eversource, National Grid, and Unitil.  


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

    Due to concerns regarding the transmission of COVID-19, the Residential Refrigerator/ Freezer recycling policy is that ARCA does not interact face-to-face with customers. Customers are asked if the unit works over the phone. ARCA works with the customer to determine the best place for the customer to leave the unit - for example, garage, adjacent to garage, porch or patio. ARCA then picks up the unit from the agreed upon location.

  • 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 before January 1, 2021 to be eligible for the $75 rebate.

  • 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:
