The Fridge and Freezer Recycling Program helps customers haul away and properly recycle old, inefficient refrigerators and freezers. In return for reducing energy consumption customers receive $50 per appliance. Our customers have already recycled nearly 50,000 appliances which has prevented more than 7 million pounds of materials from being tossed in a landfill.
According to ENERGY STAR®, refrigerators 15 years or older use twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR certified model. What are you waiting for?
LG&E and KU residential electric customers may participate in this program. To be eligible, the refrigerator or freezer must be:
- full-size (at least 7.75 cubic feet or larger),
- empty, and
- accessible for removal.
Small "dorm-style" refrigerators do not qualify. Customers can schedule a pick-up time to have a trained team remove and recycle up to two inefficient, qualified appliances at their convenience in the same calendar year.
