It pays to recycle your old refrigerator or freezer
Need a convenient way to recycle an old fridge or freezer? Entergy Arkansas makes appliance recycling a breeze. Simply schedule an appointment and we’ll pick up your old refrigerator and recycle it at no cost. Not only will you be doing your part to keep appliances out of the landfill, you’ll also receive a $25 rebate.*
An older refrigerator uses about 35% more energy than newer, more efficient models. According to ENERGY STAR®, an efficient refrigerator could save you up to $260 per year on your energy bill! Plus, Entergy Arkansas offers additional rebates when you purchase an ENERGY STAR® certified compact, chest or upright freezer.
Did you know: the average older refrigerator contains more than 120 pounds of recyclable steel? Our technicians can recycle up to 95% of the materials, turning things like plastic, metals and glass into new appliances. Your old fridge or freezer may also contain refrigerants, oils, mercury and other toxic compounds that are harmful if not properly removed and recovered.
Customers should have the following information ready to schedule an appointment:
- Entergy Arkansas residential account number
- Name on account and physical address
- Appliance information (appliance type, brand and model, cubic feet, estimate age/year)
- Email address and phone number
*Must be a residential customer. Appliance must be in working condition.
