Appliance Recycling

Please be advised that we are temporarily not accepting new appointments for recycling pickup at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to resume normal operations as soon as possible.

If you're replacing your main refrigerator, or you want to recycle a working second refrigerator or freezer, call us. We'll help you recycle your old unit in a safe and environmentally friendly way, and pay you $25 for each unit we pick up.  

We'll even recycle your room A/C (up to four a year) along with your scheduled pick-up of your refrigerator or freezer. There is no rebate for recycling a room A/C. 

Eligibility and Deadlines

  • You must be an O&R electric customer in New York State to participate in this program.
  • O&R and contractors scheduled to perform field visits will follow health and safety guidelines ordered by the CDC and local government authorities to reduce the transmission of the virus. If you wish to leave your appliance outdoors for pick-up, please mention this to the contractor while scheduling your appointment.
