Program Details

To schedule your appointment call 1-888-409-8308 or pre-qualify online. We'll ask you a few short questions about the appliance you'd like to recycle, and then we'll let you know what dates we'll be in your area.

You'll receive a call 1-2 days in advance of your appointment with a 4-hour window of time when you can expect our team to arrive. The driver will inspect your appliance to verify that it's 7.75+ cubic feet and in working condition. Qualifying appliances will be safely removed from your home and taken to our recycling center. Within approximately 4-6 weeks, you'll receive your incentive check by mail.

Appliance recycling is provided by ARCA Recycling, Inc. Over the past four decades, ARCA has assisted in the recycling of tens of thousands of appliances. Their efforts result in preventing the release of ozone-depleting refrigerants and foam-blowing agents as well as safely disposing of other environmentally-dangerous materials.
