3. P. RECYCLING REFRIGERATORS

  • By properly recycling your old refrigerator and replacing it with a new refrigerator that has earned the ENERGY STAR, you can save between $35 and $300 and prevent 1,500 to 14,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

    Note: Refrigerator dollar savings are based on replacing a pre-1999 or post-2002 refrigerator over the products lifetime (12 years). GHG emissions savings are due to recycling a pre-1999 and post-2002 and due to the energy savings from replacing the unit with an ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator.
