NYSEG, RG&E offering cash for old refrigerators, freezers

NYSEG and RG&E customers who recycle a working second refrigerator or freezer between June 1 and August 31 will have the chance to win $250 prepaid debit cards. Two prepaid debit cards are being offered to NYSEG customers; one to RG&E customers.

 

Customers who chose to recycle energy-wasting refrigerators or freezers will automatically be eligible to win a prepaid debit card when they schedule a free home pick up during June, July and August through NYSEG and RG&E’s refrigerator/freezer recycling program. In addition to the chance to win a prepaid debit card, they will receive a $30 incentive and stand to save up to $150 a year by unplugging the refrigerator or freezer. 

 

Second refrigerators or freezers kept for extra cold storage in garages or basements are usually older models, which many people don’t realize can use as much as three times more electricity to run than newer models built to higher energy efficiency standards. Refrigerators and freezers to be recycled must be in working order and have an inside volume of between 10 and 30 cubic feet.

 

“This program is all about saving – saving money, saving energy and saving the environment,” said Mark S. Lynch, president of NYSEG and RG&E. “In addition, participants will have an opportunity to win one of the $250 prepaid debit cards; it’s as simple as scheduling a free pickup, and we’ll do the rest.”

To schedule a free refrigerator or freezer pickup, NYSEG and RG&E customers can call 1.877.691.0021. NYSEG customers can also schedule a pickup or learn more about the program at http://bit.ly/UOqn7M; RG&E customers can do the same at http://bit.ly/k7D6kq.
