Appliance Recycling

Limited Time Offer $50 Rebate
During the month of October, we’re increasing our refrigerator and freezer recycling rebates to $50 (up from $35) as an extra fall treat for recycling responsibly. Schedule your free pickup by October 31.

We want to make it easy for you to properly dispose of your old appliance—and we'll pay you to do it! Schedule online for a FREE pickup of your refrigerator or freezer. Then we’ll mail you a check for $50 if you schedule by 10/31 (usually $35).

Starting June 1, 2021, we offer two options to schedule an appliance recycling appointment. At the time of scheduling your appointment, you can either select an in-home pickup or a curbside pickup. If you select an in-home pickup, the crew picking up your appliance will follow CDC guidance and wear masks and gloves to remove your appliance. If it is safe for you to do so and you prefer a curbside pickup, you can move your appliance outside, and we will pick it up.

    Small Appliance Recycling Events

    PPL Electric Utilities will continue to host small appliance recycling events throughout our territory beginning Spring 2022. During those events, PPL customers will be able to drop off room ACs and dehumidifiers at a specific location and on a specific date. Event dates and locations will be announced approximately two weeks before the event date and customers will need to pre-register for the event. PPL customers interested to participate in an event can also put their name on a waitlist and will be contacted when an event is scheduled in their area. To put your name on our waitlist, please click the “Schedule a Pickup or Event Registration” button below.

    Appliance pickup details:
