SaskPower’s Fridge Recycling Program is into its final year.
As in previous years, people can call or book online and a crew will pick up old fridges or freezers and recycle them, for free.
“You can save up to $130 a year on your power bill by removing your old fridge or freezer,” says SaskPower Director of Customer Programs Janson Anderson. “We’ll do the heavy lifting so you have more time to barbecue at home or relax at the cottage.”
After six years and more than 31,000 appliances recycled, many of the power-guzzling fridges in the province have been recycled.
Customers who recycled their fridge through the program helped save roughly 4.6 megawatts of power.
SaskPower says that’s enough to power nearly 4,500 homes annually.
