Get Paid to Recycle Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer

SCEEP is hosting free pickup days May 19-20

The South County Energy Efficiency Partnership, a partnership of Southern California Edison, Southern California Gas Co., the cities of Carpinteria, Goleta and Santa Barbara, and Santa Barbara County, are hosting free refrigerator pickup days on Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20.

All South Coast residents and businesses interested in replacing their older working refrigerator or freezer with a more energy-efficient appliance or disposing of a spare are encouraged to register.

In addition to picking up old, working units and recycling them, SCE will also pay $35 for a refrigerator and $35 for a freezer. Old appliances are dismantled at a recycling center, where the metals and refrigerants are removed in an environmentally safe manner.

The pickup event is one of many SCE programs hosted by the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership to help the region shift toward more energy-efficient technologies.

To participate in the pickup, residents and businesses can click here to register or call 800.234.9722. SCE will visit the qualifying home or business to haul away the old refrigerator or freezer. Participants will then receive a $35 check in the mail. Customers who cannot participate on that day can arrange a pickup and receive their incentive by calling 800.234.9722 or clicking here.

To qualify, refrigerators or freezers must be in working (e.g., cooling) order, between 10 and 32 cubic feet in size, and located at a valid SCE billing address within the SCE territory. Pickup and incentive are limited to a total of two refrigerator or freezer units per location per year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
