Recycle your old refrigerator for cash. It’s back: ComEd is again picking up old refrigerators and freezers and will give you cash back. Read about all other ComEd rebates here.
Fridge & Freezer Recycling Program has ended
Old refrigerators and freezers can consume as much as four times more energy than newer models and could be costing you up to $150 a year in electricity. Let us recycle your old, working fridge or freezer, and we’ll send you $50. This program has ended.
Schedule Your free Pickup online or call 1-855-433-2700 during regular hours:
- 8:00 am – 5:00 pm Monday – Friday

ComEd will pick up your old, working fridge or freezer for FREE, recycle it in an environmentally responsible way, plus send you $50. Recycle a working room air conditioner at the same time and get $10 more.
I scheduled online for the next available pick up date. Keep in mind: because I do not have space for two refrigerators I had ComEd take my old fridge away before my new fridge showed up three days later. I consumed all my food and store a few things at my neighbors.
The check showed up about a month after they took my old fridge away. An added bonus was I didn’t have to pay Abt $29 to recycle my old fridge. So total savings = $79 plus I bought a qualifying Energy Star appliance for an additional $50 rebate. Final $129 savings. Cha-ching!
