Appliance Recycling Program

Note: Select energy efficiency programs for existing homes are transitioning to the utility companies

To learn more about this transition and for utility contact information please visit this page.

The Appliance Recycling Program will no longer be available beginning July 1, 2021. All appliance pick-ups through NJCEP must be completed by June 30, 2021. Please contact your utility for more information about available recycling programs if you are unable to schedule a Recycling Pickup before June 30, 2021.

 

If you are a PSE&G electric customer and are interested in appliance recycling, please call 888-484-8313 to schedule a pick-up appointment.

JCP&L, Rockland Electric, and Atlantic City Electric customers may schedule an appliance pick-up from NJ's Clean Energy Appliance Recycling Program by clicking the button below:

 You can responsibly recycle your working refrigerator and/or freezer and earn a $50 incentive! You'll be glad to know that approximately 95% of each appliance is recycled. We safely dispose of hazardous chemicals, minimizing waste and environmental impact.

Additional eligible appliances include working room air conditioners and dehumidifiers. You will receive a $25 incentive for each unit recycled. Room air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers must be picked up during the same appointment as the refrigerator or freezer. See below for qualifying details.

Recycling Makes Sense

Consider these facts:

  • On average a newer refrigerator or freezer consumes 1,000 fewer kWh annually than one manufactured before 1990. 
  • Recycling 20,000 older refrigerators or freezers saves enough energy to power approximately 1,400 homes, equivalent to removing 40,000 cars from the road for one year. 
  • To date New Jersey residents have recycled over 65,000 units, saving approximately 65,000 megawatt hours of electricity, enough to power 4,550 homes a year.
  • Upgrading can save up to $150 a year on energy costs. Find out how much your refrigerator or freezer costs to run.

New Jersey's Clean Energy Program is proud to be a Responsible Appliance Disposal Program Partner with the EPA.

 

Promotion Dates

This offer is valid through June 30, 2021 and is available to residential customers of Atlantic City Electric, JCP&L, and Rockland Electric.

Rebate Levels 

When you turn in your appliance(s), you will receive  $50 for each qualifying refrigerator and/or freezer. You may receive a $25 incentive for a room air conditioner or dehumidifier recycled at the same time as the refrigerator/freezer (up to the maximum limit of two refrigerators and/or freezers, two room air conditioners, and two dehumidifiers per calendar year). The units must be working at the time of pickup. Rebate checks are mailed approximately 120 days after the pickup. 

Eligible Equipment 

  • Refrigerators and freezers must be 10 to 30 cubic feet in size.
  • Room air conditioners must be removed from windows, and dehumidifiers should be drained of water.
  • All appliances must be owned by the customer and operational at the time of pickup.
  • You must provide clear and safe access to your appliance(s) for the removal team as they have to be placed either outside or in an open garage. Personnel will not risk injury, or be able to move personal effects, or otherwise modify your home (e.g., remove door or railings) to remove the unit.
  • See more details online or call 866-NJSMART. 

Bulk Appliance Recycling

Buildings with at least five dwelling units can get enhanced rebates when recycling five or more working refrigerators,freezers, room air conditioners or dehumidifiers. Visit this page for more details.

EPA's RAD Program

New Jersey's Clean Energy Program is a proud Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program partner.
