Salt River Project is partnering with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Responsible Appliance Disposal Program to recycle old, working fridges and freezers for free. In exchange for the recycled appliance, customers receive a $50 check.
SRP hopes to help customers save money on their energy bills; people who idly operate a second fridge spend up to $100 more in energy costs each year.
Ninety-five percent of every donated appliance is recycled — from the foam insulation to the refrigerants. This prevents about 10 tons of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere — which is equal to taking two cars off the road for a year.
