The Illinois Municipal Electricity Agency (IMEA), a nonprofit organization representing 33 Illinois municipal and co-op electricity providers, administers the Illinois Recycle My Fridge program in combination with Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA), Inc.

People who receive their electricity from an IMEA-member electric system may participate. The program will pick up up to two old, working refrigerators or freezers from the participant's home. The participant receives a $50 prepaid card for each qualifying refrigerator or freezer. The refrigerators and/or freezers must be secondary units (the units to be recycled may not be the home's primary refrigerator/freezer) and must be between 10 and 30 cubic feet in volume.

Additional information on the program can be found on the IMEA website.
