Appliance Recycle Program

Refrigerator, Freezer and Room Air Conditioner Rebates

"Fridges" that are more than 15 years old use three times more energy than today's ENERGY STAR qualified models. The City of St. James has a program where we'll arrange to have your old, working second "fridge" or freezer picked up for FREE and you'll get paid for it! We'll recycle it in an environmentally safe way and give you a $35 reward. Add a working room air conditioner (AC) and get an extra $25.
