Do you have an older refrigerator or freezer in your basement or garage? Are you considering
replacing your present refrigerator or freezer? If so, MidAmerican Energy will provide a rebate for the new
qualifying unit and pay you to let us recycle the old.
Keeping a spare refrigerator or freezer running can add more than $100 per year to your electric bill.
As an Iowa MidAmerican Energy electric customer who has a working refrigerator, freezer or room air
conditioner that you would like to recycle, give us a call. We’ll send a recycling contractor to provide
free pick-up and recycling of your old working appliance (according to environmentally friendly standards),
and even give you a rebate. How cool is that!

At the time of your appliance pick-up you will receive an energy-saving kit that includes energy efficiency
tips and additional energy-saving information.
