Appliance Recycling Rebates

How to get old, energy inefficient refrigerators and freezers out of your home and earn rebates. Let us pick up and recycle your appliances.

Recycle Old Appliances for Cash

Those old appliances sitting in your garage or basement waste energy and money. We’ll recycle them (and pay you).

Consumers Energy electric customers can receive $50 for each eligible refrigerator or freezer recycled. Plus $15 for each eligible room air conditioner or dehumidifier.*

Your old fridge, freezer, air conditioner or dehumidifier could be adding up to $150 a year to your energy bill. But don't take it to the dump - if it's in working condition, we'll pick it up free of charge and give you a cash rebate.

Please note, recycling is only available to Consumers Energy electric customers. Each home is limited to recycling two large and four small units every calendar year. Someone 18 or older must be present at time of pickup to sign for the release of recycled appliances.

*Room air conditioners and dehumidifiers must be picked up for recycling at the same time as a refrigerator or freezer.

It's easy to get started, just click the button or call us at 888-990-2246.
