DTE Appliance Recycling Program

In August 2009, DTE Energy began dismantling more than 1,000 old refrigerators turned in by Detroit Edison customers as part of the Your Energy Saving'sSM Appliance Recycling program the company launched in June. The appliances are being dismantled at a newly opened state-of-the-art recycling plant in Livonia.

The Appliance Recycling program offers Detroit Edison customers $50 for their older model refrigerators and freezers and hauls them away for free.
