Appliance Retirement Program

Get rid of old fridges and freezers the easy way. Older fridges and freezers can use more electricity than any other appliance in your home, so retiring them can mean real savings—up to $180 a year. Efficiency Nova Scotia will pick them up, recycle them properly, and give you $30.
