Secondary Refrigerator/Freezer Turn-In

Does this sound familiar? You bought a new refrigerator and moved your old fridge to a garage or basement to keep a few drinks and some surplus food items cold. Old refrigerators, especially those bought before 1993, use more than twice as much electricity as a new ENERGY STAR model. What’s more, refrigerants in these older appliances weaken over time and door seals start to leak, causing a decline in the performance.

CHEC offers members a $100 bill credit for turning in their energy-wasting, secondary refrigerators or freezers on Hatteras Island.  In addition to a bill credit, CHEC will come to your home, remove and recycle the unit for free! 

To qualify, the refrigerator or freezer must be:

  • Plugged in and working
  • A secondary unit (not your primary kitchen refrigerator)
  • A residential style refrigerator or freezer between 10 and 30 cubic feet
  • Owned by rebate recipient
Female getting water from a stainless steel side by side refrigerator

The program is limited to Hatteras Island residences, two units per address.
