Moneywatch Q & A: NV Energy Refrigerator Recycling Program

Posted: Updated:

Energy experts say older refrigerators cost four times more than newer models to run. If you are like many northern Nevadans and have an old fridge or freezer draining energy in the garage, you might consider recycling it. How? NV Energy is making it easy.

NV Energy will come pick up the unit, haul it away and then send you a $50 check about a month later. The utility company says there are ample incentives for offering this program. For example, it helps get energy-guzzling units off the grid and it keeps them out of landfills. Doug Eddie, with NV Energy, says recycling a fridge could also save an average household about $140 a year.

The refrigerator cannot be your primary fridge, it has to be in working order and a standard size; no dorm-sized refrigerators will be accepted.
