  • Get $50 & FREE Recycling
  • Save Money: By recycling your secondary refrigerator or freezer, you’ll save up to $150 a year in energy costs, or as much as $1,000 over its remaining life.
  • Save Natural Resources: The average refrigerator 10 years old or older contains about 159 pounds of steel, 75 pounds of plastic and 10 pounds of glass. Recycling with us ensures sustainable handling of these materials that would otherwise demand landfill space. For every ton of steel that is properly recycled – roughly the amount in 16 full-size refrigerators – we save 2,500 pounds of iron ore, 1,400 pounds of coal and 120 pounds of limestone in natural resources.

Eligibility Requirements

No purchase of new or replacement refrigerator or freezer units necessary for program participation. Rebates are available to all Georgia Power residential customers. JACO Environmental, 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. Customers must own the unit(s) being recycled. Limit two units per Georgia Power residential account per year. A check will be issued to the Georgia Power customer and will be mailed approximately 4-6 weeks after the appliance pickup. Contractor reserves the right to leave the appliance if removal may cause damage to the property, or is otherwise impractical or unsafe.

Did You Know?

Georgia Power households have approximately 235,000 secondary refrigerators or freezers more than 10 years old in their garages, basements, storage spaces or elsewhere in their homes. If every Georgia Power household recycled their secondary refrigerator, the annual energy savings would be as much as 250 million kWh/year. Many of these secondary refrigerators or freezers are not ENERGY STAR® certified and typically use four times more energy than newer ENERGY STAR models.
