Got an old inefficient fridge or freezer? Let us recycle it for you and get a $30 credit on your bill for up to two appliances per household!
Some appliances continue to run long after they should have been unplugged.
Old refrigerators and freezers from the 60s, 70s and 80s, while still operating, can use three times the energy to keep items cool than current models. Buying old appliances at garage sales or passing them on to relatives just compounds energy inefficiency.
The refrigerant used in old refrigerators and freezers is classified as a greenhouse gas and should be kept out of the environment. Without proper decommissioning, the refrigerant gas in these old units often escape into the environment, creating problems with the earth’s atmosphere.
Clark Public Utilities wants to help you help our environment. If you live in Clark County, are a residential customer, and have an old refrigerator or freezer that you no longer want, we will be happy to pick it up from your home at no charge and see that it is properly decommissioned by our contractor CFC Recycling. The existing appliance for decommissioning and recycling must be a residential-style appliance, verified as functional and have a minimum capacity of 10 cubic feet. We cannot accept broken refrigerators or freezers.
It’s as simple as calling 360-992-3000 and asking us to pick up your old refrigerator or freezer.
