Taken from our blog at oc-repair.com:

 

Update 06/19/2013: New phone number for CA Edison Appliance pick up is 800-234-9722
This is a similar program to LADWP, but no refunds of $100 are available:

SCE Will Give You $50 and Haul Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer – Free!
You may qualify if…

1.You are an SCE customer
2.The appliance is located at your SCE service address
3.The appliance is in working condition at the time of pick up
4.The refrigerator or freezer is 10 to 32 cubic feet in size

Why Recycle Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer?
•You will get $50 for your outdated, inefficient working appliance
•Your old appliance will be hauled away – free!
•You may save up to $180 per year on your energy bill* by switching to a new, energy efficient model or disposing of a spare.
Did You Know? Facts About Older Refrigerators and Freezers
•Older refrigerators and freezers use twice as much electricity as newer models.
•Purchasing a new, energy-efficient model will lead to ongoing cost savings on electric bills.
•California law prohibits dumping refrigerators and freezers in landfills.
•Disposing of an old refrigerator or freezer can cost more money than you think. When you recycle, it’s hauled away free.
What Happens to My Old Refrigerator?
Old appliances are carefully dismantled at recycling centers. The focus is on recycling in an environmentally safe manner.

Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants, mercury, polyurethane foam insulation with CFC 11, glass, and oil are removed, leaving other materials such as metals and plastics that can be recycled for new uses.
