Get $35 from PPL for Recycling Old Fridge

PPL is offering free pick up of your old refrigerator plus $35 to encourage residents to recycle appliances that are not energy efficient.

An oudated, spare residential-sized refrigerator or freezer can use two to three times more electricity than newer Energy Star models. Now you can have those inefficient appliances picked up for free, get paid for doing so and reduce your electricity use. Plus, 95 percent of the materials from these appliances will be recycled and not just dumped in landfills. 

Here's the deal:

  • The refrigerator or freezer must be in working condition and be between 10 and 30 cubic feet in size.
  • You must own the unit and be a PPL Electric Utilities customer.
  • Limit two units per address per calendar year.
  • A $35 incentive check will be mailed to you after the appliance is collected.

Bonus: If you have inefficient, working window air conditioners, PPL will have those picked up at the same time as your refrigerator or freezer and give you an additional $25 per unit, limit four per household per calendar year. 

For more information, call the PPL customer service center toll free at 877-270-3522.
