Do you have an old refrigerator or chest freezer taking up valuable space in your basement or garage? While you may not think about these older appliances often, they can be costing you hundreds of dollars each year. Ontonagon REA’s Energy Optimization program offers free pick up and recycling of older functioning appliances. You can even earn $50 for proper removal and disposal of each secondary refrigerator or freezer.

Program Includes:

The free pick up and recycling of the units is handled by the Energy Optimization team. Even more, while our drivers are at your home to pick up your old or inefficient refrigerator or chest freezer, we can also recycle window air conditioners and dehumidifiers. All items must be in working condition.

How To Participate

Contact the Energy Optimization team at 877-296-4319 to schedule an appointment. A representative from our team will come to your home for the pick up, and a cash incentive will be mailed to you. It’s that simple!
