DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dayton Power and Light (DP&L), a subsidiary of The AES Corporation (NYSE: AES), has boosted its rebate on outdated and inefficient appliances from $40 to $50 to help you save money and protect the environment.
“That old refrigerator could be costing you $150 a year, especially if it’s older than ten years or you have a second fridge running in your garage,” said DP&L’s Tom Tatham, who leads the energy efficiency programs.
Since 2009, DP&L has recycled more than 17,000 inefficient refrigerators and freezers – recycling and reusing nearly 100% of the metals, glass and other materials. See how we do it. The materials are recycled for other beneficial uses or eliminated in a responsible way and the large appliance doesn’t take up space in landfills.
Recycling your appliance is easy. DP&L picks up your old inefficient refrigerator or freezer at no cost. For more information about DP&L’s appliance recycling program – visit our website. To schedule a pick-up, simply call 1-877-545-4112. Appliances must be in working order and between 10-30 cubic feet – the standard size for most models.
