Refrigerator & Freezer Recycling
Thanks to all the participants in this year's Refrigerator Roundup. Our customers in California recycled a total of 70 energy-guzzling fridges in September and October, which is enough to power 52 homes for a full month. All told, the roundup resulted in energy savings of 29,680 kilowatt-hours for the state.
Special congratulations to Crescent City and Mount Shasta, who were two of the top communities in the Roundup.
Say "See ya later, refrigerator®" and earn $35
That old refrigerator or freezer in your basement or garage is probably costing more than you realize (see how much). Let us pick it up for free and you'll receive $35 for taking part.
Why get rid of your old refrigerator or freezer?
It's wattsmart! – By discontinuing the use of a second refrigerator, you can save up to $150 a year on your electricity bill.
Protect the environment – 95% of the old refrigerator or freezer will be reused. This is important since old units are not biodegradable.
Get paid – Receive a $35 incentive check.
Free compact fluorescent light bulbs – You'll also receive a free kit at the time of pickup, including two free CFLs and information to help you use less electricity.
