appliances make up to 13% of your home's energy usage

Appliance Recycling for Your Home

Save up to $150 on your energy bill every year by letting DP&L pick up and recycle your old (working) refrigerator or freezer. Plus, we'll pay you $50 per appliance. New this year - get an additional $20 if you have an older, inefficient room air conditioner or dehumidifier we can pick up at the same time. 

We'll do the heavy lifting, and nearly 100% of the components will be reused or recycled.

Schedule a Pickup

Did you know? An older model refrigerator or freezer can use up to 5 times as much electricity as a new, more energy efficient model. Removal could save you up to $150 annually. Get more energy-saving tips for appliances


  • You must be a DP&L residential or business customer
  • Your refrigerator or freezer is between 10 and 30 cubic feet in size, is working and empty at the time of pickup
  • If you are also recycling a room air conditioner or dehumidifier, the unit must be operable and picked up along with a refrigerator or freezer
  • Limit 2 refrigerators/freezers and 2 air conditioners/dehumidifiers per calendar year
