Appliance Recycling Program

Potomac Edison’s Appliance Recycling Program is back! 

Receive $75 when you recycle your working refrigerator or dehumidifier with Potomac Edison’s Appliance Recycling Program. Receive $25 when you recycle a working freezer, room air conditioner, or mini refrigerator.

Potomac Edison’s Appliance Recycling Program is now picking up dehumidifiers without another qualifying appliance. 

Have an older, working appliance using 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, and we’ll give you a rebate! We make it easy for you to save the environment…and add money in your wallet.

Room air conditioners and mini refrigerators must be recycled along with a qualifying refrigerator, freezer, or dehumidifier.

or call 1-888-314-3132
