Refrigerator Recycling

Earn rebates for recycling an old, working refrigerator or freezer

Try a safer, more helpful way to get rid of that old, still-functional fridge or freezer—and pick up a nice rebate!

Program participants must be residential, electric customers of Xcel Energy with a valid account number, and own an operational 10–30 cubic feet refrigerator/freezer picked up from the residential address listed on the billing account. 'Operational' is defined as being capable of cooling/freezing.

Get Started

  1. Make an appointment for your free refrigerator pickup: call 1-866-552-8755 or schedule online (external link). Rebate is $50.

  2. Plug in your fridge or freezer the night before the pickup date (the unit must demonstrate full operational capability when inspected at the time of pickup).

  3. The rebate will be mailed to you within four weeks after pickup. We will also throw in two value LED bulbs for you to use wherever you want.

You'll receive nearly $100* in annual energy savings while helping reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and ozone-depleting chemicals.
