ENERGY STAR Refrigerator Plus Recycling Program
Look for the Star! Buy a qualified ENERGY STAR Refrigerator and recycle an old, working model. You then receive a $50 rebate from your participating municipal utility through a mail-in rebate.
ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators:
- are 20 percent more efficient than standard models
- replacing a fridge from the 1980s can save $100 per year in energy costs
- replacing a fridge from the 1970s can save $200 per year in energy costs
- maximize your energy dollars without sacrificing the features you want

Do not run the dishwasher until you have a full load; use the air-dry feature whenever possible.
