Get rid of your energy-wasting fridge and get a free cooler

Jun 02, 2014

Recycle your old energy-wasting fridge or freezer with the Snohomish County PUD and get a collapsible cooler, ideal for summer picnics and parties.

The 18-can cooler has a zippered front pocket, two front mesh pockets, a cellphone pocket, a shoulder strap and a polyethylene/vinyl lining. Supplies are limited. Customers need to schedule their pickups between now and July 31 to be eligible.

Your old, energy-wasting second fridge or freezer is wasting you money – about $200 this year and every year you keep it.

Old refrigerators and freezers often become inefficient storage areas for a handful of items. They can use up to three times the energy of newer ones.

This program gives customers a free and convenient way to safely recycle these units and save money on their energy bills.

If you purchase your new refrigerator or freezer at Sears, you can schedule a free pick-up of your 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

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. You must own the unit(s) being recycled, with a pickup limit of two units per account.

To schedule a pickup, and take advantage of the summer cooler promotion, call 1-877-577-0510. Or schedule your pick-up online at To help process your request, have your PUD account number available.
