Appliance Recycling Program


Receive $75 when you recycle your fridge or freezer with FirstEnergy’s Ohio electric companies Appliance Recycling Program.

Have an older, working fridge or freezer using energy in your garage or basement? While it may provide additional storage, it’s not worth the additional cost on your electric bill. By recycling your old appliance, you can save over $100* per year in energy costs, and we’ll give you $75! We make it easy for you to save the environment… and add money in your wallet.

Plus, recycle a working dehumidifier, room air conditioner or mini refrigerator along with a qualifying refrigerator or freezer and you’ll receive an additional $35*** per unit.
