The goal is to have people rethink how much they really need a second refrigerator or freezer, which are typically kept in basements and garages for extra storage. However, what many people do not realize is that the convenience of chilling a few items can come with a steep price. Refrigerators and freezers manufactured before 1990 can use three times more electricity than newer appliances. And that can burn up to $200 or more per year in extra electricity costs.
By scheduling a free pickup of a working refrigerator or freezer at their home — labor included — residents not only start saving money, but instantly qualify for a $30 incentive reward, no purchase necessary. Scheduling a pick up is quick and easy. Residential customers should call 1-877-545-4113, or Click Here to schedule on-line.
Not only will you reduce energy use, you’ll prevent older refrigerators and freezers from ending up in landfills, where they could leach toxins into the ground and air. Instead, the electric utilities’ contracted recycler, JACO Environmental, will safely extract various toxic components that are found inside refrigerators, including contaminated oils, mercury and CFCs that both deplete the ozone layer and accelerate global warming. JACO’s process safely recycles 95 percent of each unit picked up.
Having an older refrigerator or freezer picked up for recycling is an easy way to make money, reduce monthly expenses and do your part to protect the environment.
This refrigerator / freezer recycling program is brought to you by your electric utility. The mission of NHSaves is to provide the state’s residents with information, programs and support designed to reduce energy use, save money and protect our environment. This program is available to all residents of New Hampshire regardless of which electric utility serves your home.
