Appliance Recycling Details

The new Texas Appliance Mail-In Rebate Program requires you to remove your old appliance from your home. In doing so, you have one of two options to choose from: Recycling or Disposal. Regardless of the option you choose, you will need to complete the Disposal/Recycling Information section on the application form.

Since the goal of Texas rebate programs is to save energy as well as help protect the environment, we hope that you’ll strongly consider recycling your old appliance. By doing so, you help keep scrap metal out of landfills and avoid contaminating Texas natural resources.

Recycling Process
Residents interested in qualifying for the bonus $75 recycling rebate must go the extra step to recycle their old appliance. This means the old appliance is removed from the home by the retailer, contractor or resident and taken to a recycling facility where:

The appliance is de-manufactured.
All hazardous materials are removed and handled in accordance with federal, state and local laws.
All recyclable materials (e.g. plastics, metal and glass) are sorted and reprocessed into raw materials for future use.

Recycling Partners
Many retailers, contractors and recycling facilities offer recycling services. Please check with your local retailer, contractor or recycler, or Search our courtesy list of Recycling Partners.

Please note:
Residents are not required to use the retailers and recyclers on the Recycling Partner list to qualify for the recycling component of the rebate. The list will simply serve as a courtesy source of information for consumers.
The recycling partners are not necessarily drop-off locations and may limit recycling services to customers only.
The recycling partner information is listed for informational purposes only and should not be considered an endorsement by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
