Appliance Turn-In Program

Due to the coronavirus health emergency, we are temporarily suspending the Appliance Turn-In Program. Please check back soon for any available updates.


This program will end, and all appliances must be picked up by September 30, 2020.


Power Trimmer

FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities will pick up and recycle your old refrigerator or freezer and you’ll get $75.

Getting rid of your old fridge or freezer couldn’t be easier. We’ll pick up and recycle your old fridge or freezer and you’ll get $75. Plus you can save up to $150 a year in reduced energy costs. Recycle a working room air conditioner or dehumidifier along with a qualifying refrigerator or freezer and you’ll get an additional $25 per unit.


Program Guidelines

  • Must be an electric customer of FirstEnergy’s Ohio utilities
  • You must own the appliance(s)
  • Refrigerators and freezers must be 10 – 30 cu. ft., plugged in, and operating (cooling) at the time of the scheduled pickup
  • Limit of two refrigerators/freezers plus up to two room air conditioners/dehumidifiers per calendar year*
  • Your incentive will be mailed to you 4-6 weeks after pickup of appliance(s)
