Georgia Power’s refrigerator recycling program helps customers save money

Georgia Power created the EarthCents Refrigerator Recycling Program for its customers, who simply contact Georgia Power to schedule a free pickup of their working secondary refrigerator or freezer. Customers receive $35.

Refrigerators manufactured before 1993 use 75 percent more energy than newer models and can cost owners as much as $150 per year to operate.

The Refrigerator Recycling Program is a part of Georgia Power’s EarthCents initiative. EarthCents is Georgia Power’s portfolio of energy efficiency programs created to help customers save money and use energy efficiently.
