For A Limited Time, Get $50 And A Chance To Win A Kindle Fire For Your Old Fridge Or Freezer









COMMERCE CITY, Colo., May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xcel Energy residential electric customers now have an additional reason to take advantage of the popular Refrigerator Recycling Program and cash in on those old, inefficient working refrigerators and freezers . The program, which provides a $50 rebate for each eligible refrigerator and/or freezer, is also offering customers the chance to win one of two Kindle Fire tablets.*

Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc.

Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (ARCA) administers the program and will pick up the old, energy guzzling refrigerators or freezers and recycle the parts locally in Commerce City, Colo.

Xcel Energy is also proud to announce a partnership (2014) with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program. Through the Refrigerator Recycling Program and ARCA's advanced recycling processes, Xcel Energy is eligible for RAD membership, which includes the proper handling of refrigerants, foam, metals, plastic, glass, PCBs, mercury and used oil found in old refrigeration appliances.

To date, more than 14,000 Xcel Energy customers in Colorado have participated in the program, which is part of Xcel Energy's Demand-Side Management Plan.

"This program provides a convenient and environmentally safe solution for our customers. There is no lugging to the curb for pickup, we're providing two free compact fluorescent light bulbs during our visit and you'll be entered into our Kindle Fire sweepstakes through the end of May," says Christmas Ramirez, Xcel Energy program manager.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that a 20-year-old refrigerator can consume two to four times more energy annually than a new model and can significantly increase customers' electricity bills. Older refrigerators put a strain on the electricity grid. Each unit costs over $100 a year in electricity bills and units 10 years or older contain more than 120 pounds of recyclable steel, according to ENERGY STAR®.  

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please visit ResponsibleByNature.com/Fridge or call (866) 552-8755. Participation in this program is subject to important rules and eligibility requirements, which are detailed at ResponsibleByNature.com/Fridge.
