Refrigerator recycling rebate increased to $100 local news eagletribune.com

“If you’ve got an old fridge or freezer chugging away in your garage or basement, this is the best time to recycle and enjoy the special $100 rebate,” said Ed White, vice president of customer and business strategy, National Grid. “Not only are you earning easy money without doing any heavy lifting, but you can save up to $150 throughout the year in reduced energy costs by retiring your energy-inefficient fridge or freezer.”

Units picked up through the program are transported to an appliance recycling facility operated by JACOEnvironmental. JACO safely removes harmful materials from the old energy-guzzlers, reclaiming 95 percent of the materials in the appliances for reuse in manufacturing new products. Even the foam insulation is safely incinerated to generate electricity.
