State Program Offers Refrigerator Recycling and Free Pick-Up



A statewide program is offering a $35 incentive to retire old, working refrigerators.

“Focus on Energy will pick up your old, working refrigerator or freezer for free, responsibly recycle it, and send you $35,” stated Casey Langan, spokesman for Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy program.

Customers can schedule a free pick up by visiting or calling 800.354.1898.

Mini-fridges are not eligible.

Participants must be residents of single-family homes or multifamily residences of three or fewer units. Two appliances may be recycled per household, per year.

Within four to six weeks you will receive your $35 incentive check by mail.

Focus on Energy has recycled nearly 65,000 refrigerators and freezers since 2012.
