Appliance Recycling Centers Of America (ARCA) Launches Second Year Contract For Conserve & Save® Refrigerator And Freezer Recycling Program In Southern Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCI) has been selected for a second year to provide services for the Conserve & Save® Refrigerator and Freezer Recycling Program sponsored by the Triad in southern Minnesota. The Triad consists of three southern Minnesota utilities: Austin Utilities, Owatonna Public Utilities and Rochester Public Utilities. The program, which saw an overwhelming response from utility customers in 2011, began again on May 15, 2012.

Through this program, participating utility customers who turn in operating but energy inefficient secondary refrigerators and freezers between May 15 and October 31, 2012 (or while funds last) will be eligible for a $35 incentive for each qualifying appliance, with a maximum of two units per length of the program. ARCA will perform the in-home collection of qualifying refrigerators and freezers and continue to properly recycle the units locally in Minnesota.

Edward R. (Jack) Cameron, ARCA's President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "The Conserve & Save® Refrigerator and Freezer Recycling Program was well received in 2011 and are we are pleased to have the opportunity to continue to provide environmentally sound, turnkey appliance recycling services in our home state of Minnesota. By partnering with the Triad, we will continue to prevent the release of ozone-depleting and high-global-warming-potential refrigerants, as well as other environmentally damaging materials, found in old appliances while reducing residential electricity demand in Southern Minnesota."

To participate in the program please call 877-341-2259 or visit www.ARCAIncUtility.com.
