Appliance Recycling - Minnesota

Appliance Recycling

For Alliant Energy's residential electric customers in Minnesota

Old working appliances, like that refrigerator in your garage, may seem convenient. But keeping it around and running can add up to $100 to your yearly energy bill.

If you have a working* refrigerator, freezer or room air conditioner you don't need, give us a call! We'll send a recycling contractor to pick up and dispose of your old appliance properly - and we'll give you a check ($50 for working refrigerators/freezers; $25 for working room air conditioners).
