Why It's Green
ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators use 20% less energy than non-ENERGY STAR refrigerators. Choosing an ENERGY STAR fridge over a non-qualified model will save around $200 of energy savings over the lifetime of the fridge. As 70% of US power is from coal and natural gas, this cost saving will also reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Replacing an old fridge will save even more. Replacing a fridge from the 1980's will save over $100 a year, and one from the 1970's over $200 per year.

How to Recycle
If the fridge is still functioning then consider giving it to a friend or family member, or donate to a charity or shelter. Re-using any item is always better for the environment than recycling. If the fridge is broken and needs to be recycled check with your local utility company, who will often offer you cash or money off your bill for your old fridge. Failing that, check for any municipal recycling facilities - many towns and cities will even pick up your refrigerator from your home. Last choice would be a local scrap metal recycle - fridges over 10 years old can have as much as 120lbs of recyclable steel!
The energy saved by recycling one such refrigerator is equivalent to almost 290 kilowatt hours. That’s enough energy to run a new ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator for 8 months.
