Fridge Buy-Back Program
Check back in spring 2014
The Fridge Buy-Back program returns in spring 2014. If you want to recycle your old fridge now, visit the Recycling Council of British Columbia or contact their Recycling Hotline at 1 800 667 4321.
Save energy and money
Refrigerators are one of the highest energy users in your home. Your energy guzzling spare fridge could be costing you up to $85 a year to operate. Save yourself the expense and recycle your old fridge.
Did you know? If all spare operating fridges were recycled in British Columbia, enough energy would be saved to power all the homes in the City of Chilliwack for an entire year.
Where to recycle your old fridge
Recycle and dispose of your fridge safely. Fridges and freezers contain Freon, a gas that destroys the ozone layer if released into the atmosphere.
For a list of local recycling options, please visit the Recycling Council of British Columbia or contact their Recycling Hotline at 604 732 9253 or 1 800 667 4321. The Recycling Council does not provide a pick-up service, but provides referrals to local recycling companies.
BC Hydro is not affiliated with the Recycling Council of British Columbia and is not responsible for fridges recycled through the depots recommended by the council.
