Let us haul away your old, working appliances for recycling. We offer free pickup, environmentally friendly disposal—and rebates.


If you have an old refrigerator or freezer in your home, recycling it can help you reduce your energy costs. PSE&G makes it easy. We’ll pick up and haul away up to two refrigerators or freezers per household. And, if you have any old, working room air conditioners or dehumidifiers, we’ll recycle up to two room air conditioners and up to two dehumidifiers per household during the same appointment.

Thank you to our valued customers who recycled their appliances during our limited-time offer between April 1 and June 17, 2022*! Your rebate checks will be mailed to you 4-6 weeks following your pickup date. Although the promotional period has ended, our Appliance Recycling Program is still available to all residential electric or dual fuel customers.


Benefits of Recycling

  • A $50 rebate for each refrigerator or freezer—plus an additional $25 rebate for each room air conditioner or dehumidifier picked up at the same time*

  • Up to $150 in annual energy savings

On Pick-up Day

  1. Customers will have the option of indoor or outdoor, no-contact appliance recycling pickups. See the section below for more details.
  2. An adult age 18 or older must be present at the time of pickup.
  3. Note that our trucks are not permitted to enter driveways.
  4. The refrigerator’s or freezer’s waterline should be disconnected, the drip pan drained, and the unit properly defrosted. All appliances must be clean, empty, closed securely, and not able to be opened by children.
  5. For outdoor pickups, plug in the appliance in one of the qualifying outside locations (garage, porch, or outbuilding).
  6. Ensure a clear and safe passage for appliance removal. Crews cannot remove furniture, railings, etc. Please also make sure pets are secured. 
  7. Using markers or sticky notes, clearly indicate each unit to be picked up for recycling.
  8. Print out the customer authorization form and place it inside your unit prior to pickup. You will receive the form via email after you schedule your appointment. If the form is not present at the time of pickup, the collection team will not be able to collect the unit, and your appointment will need to be rescheduled.

What Is a No-Contact Pickup?

No-contact pickups allow us to collect and recycle your old appliance(s) while maintaining social distancing for the safety of our customers and contractors.

When our team arrives at your home, they will be wearing masks and other personal protective equipment. They will remove your old, plugged-in appliance(s) from a designated location.
