Earn $75 by recycling old fridge

From staff report

If you keep an old refrigerator running in the garage or basement, that extra cold storage is costing you extra money through higher energy usage. This August and September, let Appalachian Power reward you with an increased $75 incentive to save that money by having that old refrigerator, or freezer, picked up for recycling. This promotion is valid until the end of September, when the incentive will return to $50.

This convenient service from Appalachian Power benefits customers on many levels. There is no work involved beyond scheduling an appointment. And having a secondary refrigerator or freezer removed from the home can save up to $150 a year through lower household energy usage. Instead of costing you money, your old refrigerator or freezer will be converted into recyclable materials by JACO Environmental. Materials from your refrigerator can be reused to make items like cell phones, soda cans and even in material used to make roads.

To participate, call 1-877-691-0025 or visit TakeChargeWV.com/recycle to schedule a convenient time for a crew to visit your home and haul away a working, old refrigerator or freezer for recycling.
