    Well if your refrigerator is still running, I would say try donating it. You can check with your local electric utility; many have programs in place to deal with old refrigerators. Another option is to locate your local scrap metal dealer. Thousands of local scrap metal recyclers can recycle old fridges and freezers. If you are buying a new unit, ask your retailer is they can recycle your old unit.
