Homeowner Question: What to do with an unused/underused fridge or freezer?

Did you know that Ameren has a program Fridge and Freezer recycling program that could put money in your pocket?

I used it to have a stand up freezer removed from my parent’s house. It had been in their basement for decades! My Dad stopped using it and for about a year it just sat unplugged in the basement because even together we could not get it out of the basement. šŸ™‚

How it Works

  2. On the day of your appointment, your technician will call you before your scheduled time window with an estimated arrival time. Upon arrival, your energy technician will confirm your appliance qualifies for the $25 incentive and remove it from your home.
  3. In addition to removing your appliance, your energy technician will provide you with an Energy Efficiency Kit at no additional cost to you.
  4. If you have a window air conditioner or dehumidifier you would like recycled, your energy technician can remove those appliances as well. Please note, your energy technician will collect these appliances, but will not remove them from the wall. These appliances must be picked up at the same time as your fridge/freezer. You will receive $10 for your window air conditioner and $5 for your dehumidifier.
  5. At the end of your appointment, your energy technician will take your appliance(s) to the recycling center. You can expect to receive your check by mail within 8 weeks.
