Get Paid to Recycle Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19

All residents and businesses in South Santa Barbara County that want to replace their older working refrigerator or freezer with a more energy-efficient appliance or dispose of a spare are encouraged to register.

In addition to picking up old, working units and recycling them, SCE will pay $35 for a refrigerator and $35 for a freezer. Old appliances are dismantled at a recycling center where the metals and refrigerants are removed in an environmentally safe manner.

The refrigerator pick-up event is one of many SCE programs hosted by the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership to help the region shift toward more energy-efficient technologies.

To participate in the pick-up, residents and businesses should go to http://www.SCEEP.org to register or call 1-800-234-9722. SCE will visit the qualifying home or business to haul away the old refrigerator or freezer. Participants will then receive a $35 check in the mail. Customers who cannot participate on May 18 or 19 can arrange a pickup and receive their incentive by calling 800-234-9722 or by visiting http://www.sce.com/appliance.

To qualify, refrigerators or freezers must be in working (e.g., cooling) order, between 10 and 32 cubic feet in size, and located at a valid SCE billing address within the SCE territory. Pickup and incentive is limited to a total of two refrigerators or freezer units per location per year.
