Did you know:
- Older refrigerators and freezers typically use two to four times more energy than today’s high-efficiency models, so upgrading from an older model to an energy-efficient one can reduce your associated energy costs by 50-75% – as much as $150 annually*
- Operating two refrigerators can account for more than 20% of home energy consumption, especially if the second unit isn’t kept full to help it operate as efficiently as possible
- Recycling a single 20-year-old refrigerator can result in 120 pounds of steel, 20 pounds of plastic and 3 pounds of glass recycled for reuse, while keeping up to 10 tons of ozone-depleting substances out of the air – that’s as much as keeping two cars off the road for a year*
Our Appliance Recycling program makes it easy for our customers in Maryland to safely and responsibly dispose of select appliances. We’ll haul away and recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer at no cost – and even send you a $50 check.
