Got an old, but still functioning fridge or freezer to get rid of? Through May 31, 2019, the Xcel Energy Refrigerator Recycling Program has increased the amount of their incentive to $50! (It’s normally $35.)
To participate in the program, you must:
- Be an Xcel Energy residential electric customer
- Have an account number
- Own an operational* 10-30 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer to be picked up from the address listed on your account.
*Operational is defined as being capable of cooling/freezing.
To qualify for the bonus rebate, you must call (800-599-5795) or sign up online by May 31. Units must be picked up no later than June 30, 2019. You’ll need to plug in your fridge or freezer the night before the pickup date to show that it is operational.
Xcel will pick up your refrigerator or freezer and recycle it for free, and they’ll also throw in two free LED light bulbs for you to use in your home. Within four weeks after pickup, you’ll receive a $50 rebate check in the mail.
