Appliance Recycling Program

Why Recycling Matters

  • Each old refrigerator or freezer requires an average of 700 to 1,600 kilowatt-hours (kwh) to operate annually.
  • If a spare refrigerator used in a basement or garage is removed and not replaced, energy savings can amount to 1,200 kWh/year, with an average $100 reduction in annual electricity charges.*
  • With NIPSCO's Appliance Recycling Program, more than 95 percent of the appliance is destroyed and recycled, preventing it from entering a landfill.
