ROSWELL, N.M., March 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Xcel Energy residential electric customers in New Mexico with old, inefficient secondary refrigerators can now receive $75 to participate in the already established Refrigerator Recycling Program—an increase of $25 from the usual incentive.

The program, administered by Appliance Recycling Centers of America Inc. (ARCA), enables customers to have their spare, working refrigerators picked up free of charge and properly recycled. The recycling incentive is automatically mailed within three to four weeks after pickup.

"We are extremely pleased to offer an added incentive for the program," said Emily Pearl, Xcel Energy program manager.  "We want to make it easy for our customers to help the environment and save money, and we hope the added incentive will be beneficial."

For more information about Xcel Energy's Refrigerator Recycling Program, please visit ResponsibleByNature.com/Fridge or call (866) 552-8755. The program is scheduled to run through Dec. 31.
