The Refrigerator Recycling Program helps customers save energy and have a positive impact on the environment. According to studies, recycling has the following effects:

  • Each recycled refrigerator keeps over 150 pounds of material out of the waste stream
  • Every ton of plastic recycled (approximately 80 fridges) saves 30 cubic yards of landfill space
  • 95% of the material in refrigerators and freezers processed in a recycling facility is recycled or disposed of in a safe manner
