Refrigerator Recycling Program

Recycle Your Refrigerator/Freezer & Receive $50

You can receive $50 from Anaheim Public Utilities for recycling your old spare refrigerator or freezer. Did you know that in many households the refrigerator is the biggest energy-consuming appliance? By recycling it, not only will you receive $50, but you will also lower your utility bill. 

Please note that customers are only eligible to participate in this program once per residence address.  To schedule a pick up, call 877-838-1155.

How the Program Works

  1. Contact us to confirm eligibility and arrange for pickup.
  2. We'll send a certified recycling contractor to pick up and dispose of the unit properly.
  3. You will receive your incentive check within six weeks after the pickup of the unit.


  • Anaheim Public Utilities residential electric customers are eligible for the incentive.
  • Only one operating unit may be recycled for incentive, unless pre-approved by Anaheim Public Utilities.
  • The old refrigerator must be full-sized and between 14 and 26 cubic feet. Mini refrigerators, such as wine coolers or dorm coolers, and commercial-sized refrigerators do not qualify.
