PUD offers free haul-away of energy-wasting fridges

Recycle your old fridge and start saving!
Mar 08, 2013

Your old, energy-wasting second fridge or freezer is wasting you money – about $200 this year and every year you keep it. The PUD will haul it away for free and recycle it. Start your spring cleaning by getting rid of it – you’ll create some extra storage space and start saving!

Sears Makes it Easy
If you purchase a new refrigerator or freezer at Sears’ Alderwood or Everett Mall locations, you can schedule a free pick-up of an old unit to occur the same day as delivery. Ask a Sears sales associate for details when you purchase your new unit.

How to Recycle Your Appliance
Requirements: To have a refrigerator or freezer picked up and recycled, it needs to be in working condition and 10 to 32 cubic feet in size.

The program is for Snohomish County PUD customers only. Customers must own the unit(s) being recycled, with a pickup limit of two units per account.

To schedule a free pick-up, Snohomish County PUD customers should call JACO Environmental toll-free 1-877-577-0510. To help process your request, please have your PUD account number available.

You’ll Help the Environment
The collected appliances are recycled at a local JACO Environmental facility in Everett.  More than 90 percent of each refrigerator or freezer is recycled.

The safe disposal of refrigerators promises to slow, stop or even reverse ozone destruction. An average refrigerator contains about 10 pounds of foam insulation and one pound of CFC-11, equivalent to 2.3 tons of carbon dioxide.
