AEP customers earn $50 recycling old refrigerator, freezer

GREENVILLE--AEP Ohio customers can win one of four $250 VISA gift cards when they recycle an outdated refrigerator or freezer now through April 30.

While the appliance recycling program pays incentives year-round, customers have an extra reason to recycle outdated units during this spring cleaning season. In addition to receiving complimentary pickup of their old, inefficient refrigerator or freezer, participating AEP Ohio customers will receive a $50 incentive check and be automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of four $250 VISA gift cards.

With spring cleaning right around the corner, think of what you can do with an extra $250, like purchasing items to make your home more energy efficient.

Recycling refrigerators and freezers creates numerous benefits for utility customers and the environment.

“Everyone is a winner with this program. When you recycle your old fridge, not only do you get paid $50, but you can also save up to $150 a year in electricity costs and help the environment, said Dave Tabata, AEP Ohio consumer programs manager. “Recycling a single unit repurposes more than 188 pounds of materials such as foam, glass and metal for future use.”

To schedule a free pickup, customers can call 1-877-545-4112 or visit Refrigerators and freezers must be in working order with an inside measurement between 10 and 30 cubic feet—standard size for most units. A maximum of two units per household a year will be accepted. Incentive checks arrive by mail six to eight weeks after the appliances are picked up.
