48,000 is the number of refrigerators we have recycled so far so please help us, help you and Recycle your fridge today and you can even earn some money!

I know you have an old fridge or freezer that you hardly use? It could be using 20% of your home’s electricity.

Recycle it and we will give you $50 and we will even pick it up for free!

This is just another community outreach programs PNM does to ensure Santa Fe (and the state of New Mexico)  is a cleaner more energy sufficient city plus they really do want to keep your energy bill as low as possible!

Another reason I am proud to have the Santa Fe VIP working with PNM! Thank You.

With the PNM Refrigerator Recycling Program, customers can earn $75 by recycling their old working fridge or freezer. PNM will even pick it up for free.

New Mexicans who recycle their old units can have a tremendous positive impact on the environment. For example:

  1. Each Fridge recycled keeps over 150 lbs. of material out of the waste stream.
  2. Every ton of plastic recycled (approximately 80 fridges) saves 30 cubic yards of landfill space.
  3. 95% of the material in fridges and freezers processed in a recycling facility is recycled or disposed of in a safe manner.

“The Refrigerator Recycling Program is a great way for customers to save energy,” said Alaric Babej, Manager of Customer Program Marketing and Development for PNM.

“Recycling is something that PNM takes a lot of pride in and it’s always a great thing when customers can join in to help the environment while also earning $75 for it.”
