PECO Pays for Your Old Stuff

Prepare to get paid for those old fridges and AC units



    PECO is offering to pay $35 to haul away your old refrigerators and help the environment.

    Did you know that old fridges can use three times more electricity than new models and consume almost $150 in energy a year?

    PECO is offering to get those dusty old appliances off your hands through their Smart Appliance Recycling Program.

    You give them an empty, clean, working refrigerator and they’ll give you $35. Throw in an old AC unit and get $25 more.

    The program kicked off in March and now has over 2,500 PECO customers signed up to receive pickups.
