Did you know you can get help to dispose of your old inefficient fridge or freezer safely under the Victorian Energy Upgrades program?

Old fridges or freezes can be costly to run, putting unnecessary pressure on your household budget.

The Victorian Government is committed to helping households and businesses by offering financial incentives to dispose of your old inefficient fridge or freezer safely.

By participating, you can save money on the disposal costs and help the environment.

Am I eligible to participate?

Any Victorian household or business that wants to dispose of a fridge or freezer, which was manufactured before 1996 but is still working, is eligible to participate.

How to participate?

To participate, you need to use the services of an accredited provider. The accredited provider can dispose the fridge or freezer itself or organise a third party to undertake the service on its behalf. Make sure to ask your accredited provider for more information about how this works.
