DP&L Increases Recycling Rebate for Refrigerators, Freezers
DAYTON -- Now through August, Dayton Power and Light will rebate an additional $10 to customers who recycle their old working refrigerators or freezers bringing the total rebate to $50.
Since 2009, DP&L has been giving customers a rebate for recycling old working refrigerators and freezers as part of its energy efficiency programs. More than 15,000 inefficient appliances have been recycled.
Due to outdated technology, older refrigerators and freezers can use as much as two to three times more electricity than newer models built to higher energy efficiency standards. In addition to the $50 rebate, by removing the old model, customers may see a savings of up to $150 a year in electricity costs.
Recycling old and inefficient refrigerators and freezers also helps the environment. Nearly all the materials in the old appliances are reclaimed and reused to manufacture new products while all hazardous materials are disposed of safely. Taking an old large appliance out of use translates to keeping about five tons of carbon dioxide equivalents out of the air similar to removing one car from the road for a year.
DP&L makes it simple to save by recycling your old, inefficient refrigerator or freezer with convenient pick-up at no cost. The additional incentive expires August 31 and returns to a $40 rebate on September 1.

To have an old refrigerator or freezer picked up, call 877-545-4112. Appliances must be in working order and between 10-30 cubic feet the standard size for most models.
