Earn $50 per recycled appliance with in-home or no-contact outside pickups

Important! You must have CenterPoint Energy electric service to participate in this program.

There could be cash hiding in your old fridge! We will collect and recycle your old, working fridge or freezer and you get $50. We are currently offering both in-home and outdoor, no-contact pickup appointments. For no-contact pickups, you can leave the appliance on your porch or patio, or in or behind your garage. You’ll receive $50 per recycled fridge or freezer. Doing so can save you up to $200 annually on energy costs. You may recycle up to two appliances per year.

Receive an additional $25 for letting us pick up and recycle your window A/C unit**.

**Window A/C pickup must be in conjunction with a scheduled fridge/freezer pickup.

The appliance recycling program is currently going through a vendor transition, and unfortunately, we are no longer scheduling appliance pick-ups. Customers who have an interest in the program can call 866-240-8476 to be added to a list and will be notified if the program resumes.
