Recycle Your Refrigerator
Thank you for your interest in our Refrigerator Recycling Program! The program has concluded for 2019. Please check back on January 31, 2020, for updates on how to participate and available collection dates.
- FREE Recycling
- Save Money: By recycling your secondary refrigerator or freezer, you’ll save up to $100 a year in energy costs, or as much as $800 over its remaining life.
- Save Natural Resources: The average refrigerator 15 years old or older contains about 120 pounds* of steel and uses twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR® refrigerator. Recycling with us ensures sustainable handling of old refrigerant and foam that would otherwise demand landfill space. You can save as much as $260 over the next five years and reduce your carbon footprint by 8,200 pounds when replacing an old refrigerator with ENERGY STAR®.

In order for your refrigerator to be eligible for a pickup and rebate, it must be a secondary working unit. It cannot be the primary refrigerator for the residence. Recleim, an appliance recycler, will pick up and recycle refrigerators and freezers that are empty and working. Refrigerators and freezers must be between 10 – 30 cubic feet in size and collection crews will need clear access to the unit. Contractor reserves the right to leave the appliance if removal may cause damage to the property or is otherwise impractical or unsafe. Customers must own the unit(s) being recycled. No purchase of new or replacement refrigerator or freezer units necessary for program participation. Limit two units per Georgia Power residential account per year. Rebates are available to all Georgia Power residential customers. A check will be issued to the Georgia Power customer and will be mailed approximately 6-8 weeks after the appliance pickup. Rebates must be submitted, processed and received by the customer within one year from pickup date. Owner-occupied single family detached homes, condominiums and townhomes are eligible to participate.
