Fridge Buyback – Terms and conditions

  1. To receive your free fridge/freezer removal the appliance needs to be in working order.
  2. The offer is only available in the ACT to residential and business properties where the business premise is one that does not have energy reporting obligations under the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007 (Cth), the Australian Governments’ Energy Efficiency in Government Operations Policy or the Carbon Neural ACT Government Framework.
  3. Fridge/freezer removal will be free of charge if the removal involves twenty (20) steps or less and can be completed within 15 minutes.
  4. Where an eligible two door fridge/freezer is removed from an eligible address and there is an active ActewAGL Electricity account for the address, it will entitle the ActewAGL Electricity account holder of that address to a $30 rebate.
  5. A single door working fridge/freezer will be eligible for removal but a $30 rebate will not be payable by ActewAGL.
  6. A fridge/freezer removal involving twenty one (21) steps or more or that is estimated to take more than 15 minutes will not be eligible for a $30 rebate payable by ActewAGL. Removal can still be arranged however a cost for removal will be quoted to the customer prior to collection.
  7. Before the date of removal, the resident disposing of the fridge/freezer is responsible for ensuring the fridge/freezer is unplugged, has been emptied, defrosted and drained of any water from inside the appliance and in any drip trays.

The credit will be applied to the ActewAGL electricity account for the address at which the fridge/freezer was removed from. A $30 credit can’t be applied if an ActewAGL electricity account is not active at the address from which the fridge/freezer was removed and therefore no payment will be made.
