Refrigerator & Freezer Recycling

$50 + Free Pickup

We'll pick up and recycle your old refrigerator or freezer.

Free pickup + $50 back!

Central Hudson can help lower your monthly energy bills -- and pay you to do it! We'll give you $50 to recycle your old, working refrigerator or freezer. We'll even pick it up, free of charge, and properly recycle it. While that old appliance in the basement or garage may provide more storage, it also costs you up to $100-per-year on your energy bill.
