Fridges collected so far
In yearly power savings
We’ve prevented the release of greenhouse gases

Fridge Buyback in NSW closes on 30 June 2017. Call your local council for fridge disposal options.

Fridge Buyback is an award-winning energy savings program that helps you reduce your power bill and save the environment by giving up your working second fridge or upright freezer.

Old fridges and freezers are some of the biggest energy users in the home, consuming up to three times the energy of new appliances.

Running a typical second fridge adds $300 to our power bill and causes one tonne of carbon pollution each year.

Fridges and freezers collected by Fridge Buyback are professionally degassed and the metals recycled.

Free collection and a $25 rebate as long as the removal does not involve going up or down more than 6 stairs.

“I have been telling all my friends about it. I really like the fact that the fridges are degassed and the metals recycled.” – Angela Stamos

Saving $300 a year by unplugging and recycling their second fridge is certainly something to smile about.

“Trying to get rid of this fridge would’ve been a nightmare if it wasn’t for Fridge Buyback,” said Fay. She was ecstatic about the free collection and delighted to receive a rebate.

“Supporting Fridge Buyback is a no-brainer for us. Every fridge or freezer collected cuts our community’s GHG emissions by around a tonne a year and cuts the residents’ annual electricity bills by $300…”

“Wanted to express my appreciation to the two gentleman who came to take my old fridge to your recycling depot. They were so efficient, courteous and careful. I’m impressed. Thanks very much.”

Questions we’re asked the most…

How do I know if my fridge is over 200L?

Most fridges have a label stating their gross litre capacity. Click here to find out where the label is located. If there is no label, measure the INTERNAL height, width and depth of both the fridge and freezer compartments and we’ll do the rest.

Where do you collect?

We have runs in most urban parts of Metropolitan Sydney, The Illawarra, The Shoalhaven, The Central Coast, The Blue Mountains, and The Hunter (including Newcastle, Maitland, Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens, Singleton, Cessnock).

How do I get my rebate?

If the removal involves 6 stairs or less you’ll be eligible for our $25 rebate. You’ll receive it in the form of a cheque which should arrive 3 weeks after the scheduled collection date.

Do I need to be home for the collection?

There’s nothing to worry about! As long as the fridge or upright freezer is on your property and accessible to the removalists you don’t need to be there. Just make sure you leave your signed terms form inside the fridge/freezer.

What do you mean spare/2nd fridge?

It has to be in working order and in regular use, but not be the main fridge/freezer at the address listed i.e. there have been two or more working fridges/freezers that have been operating on your home electricity account for some time. Examples include a garage or drinks fridge.
