Duke Energy customers who recycle outdated refrigerators or freezers will receive a $50 incentive through the Duke Energy appliance recycling program.
Duke Energy’s appliance recycling program encourages customers to have inefficient refrigerators and freezers picked up at their home free of charge.
Participation is as simple as calling Duke Energy at 855-398-6200, or by visiting duke-energy.com/recycle to schedule a time for a free home pickup. Refrigerators and freezers must be in working condition and must be between 10 and 30 cubic feet in size. A check for $50 arrives within four to six weeks. A maximum of two units per household per calendar year will be accepted.
Units picked up through the program are transported to an appliance recycling facility operated by JACO Environmental. JACO removes harmful materials from the old energy guzzlers, reclaiming 95 percent of the materials in the appliances for reuse in manufacturing new products.
