For a limited time, get $75 when you recycle your working fridge or freezer with Potomac Edison’s Appliance Recycling Program

Got an older, working fridge or freezer hogging energy in your garage or basement? While it may provide additional storage, it’s not worth the additional cost on your electric bill. By recycling your old appliance, you can save over $100* per year in energy costs, plus, for a limited time, we’ll give you an additional $75! We make it easy for you to save the environment… and your wallet.

Plus, recycle a working air conditioner or dehumidifier along with a qualifying refrigerator or freezer and you’ll get an additional $25 per unit.
