Appliance Recycling

Recycle Responsibly

The smartest way to get rid of your old, working appliances is also the simplest. Let SMECO pick them up and recycle them responsibly. We make it easy, with both indoor and outdoor pickup options. There’s no cost to you. In fact, you’ll get $50 for an old, working refrigerator or freezer and an additional $25 if you recycle an old, working room air conditioner,
mini refrigerator, or dehumidifier at the same time.

Within four to six weeks after pickup of your old appliance, you’ll receive a check in the mail.

Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program

This voluntary partnership program from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency works with organizations to dispose of old refrigerated appliances in environmentally friendly ways—even going beyond federal requirements. By participating, you’ll help protect the Earth’s climate and ozone layer, cut greenhouse gas emissions, prevent the release of hazardous substances that can harm us, and keep waste out of landfills.

Properly disposing of 1,000 refrigerators is equivalent to preventing carbon dioxide emissions from 110 homes for one year.
