Cash Alert! Recycle Your Old Appliances

Posted on Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Did you know that CFU offers cash rebates when you recycle eligible used appliances at the Transfer Station? Cedar Falls residents qualify for a $50 rebate when recycling a freezer or refrigerator with capacity of at least 16 cubic feet. CFU pays a $25 rebate for recycling a window air conditioner. The rebates are limited to two per appliance type per year for any Cedar Falls Utilities customer.

When you drop off a qualifying appliance at the Transfer Station, pay the $7.50 disposal fee. Then, sign the city’s log of accepted appliances. The city will give your participation information to CFU on a monthly basis, there are no additional rebate forms to fill out. You’ll see the rebate credit on your CFU bill within six to eight weeks.

The city also offers pickup of appliances for recycling. Call City Refuse Services at
319-273-8629 to request a pickup. In that case, the $7.50 disposal fee will be charged on your next utility bill and an extra $5 fee applies for the pickup.
