Fridges and freezers made before 1993 are very inefficient. A pre-1993 unit costs more than twice as much to operate as a new model. Fridges and freezers from the 1970s cost four times more to operate!2

Recycling is Good for the Environment

Recycling your older, working appliance will help you reduce energy use and costs while taking the appliance off your hands in a way that’s good for the environment. The units are sent to a recycling facility where 95% of the material is recycled, and hazardous waste is disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.

Fact: The average 10 year old refrigerator contains more than 120 pounds of recyclable steel!3.
