Minnesota-based Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (ARCA) administers the program and will pick up the old, energy guzzling refrigerators or freezers, typically located in a garage, basement or lake home, and recycle the parts.

To date, more than 21,000 Xcel Energy customers in Minnesota have participated in the program, which is part of Xcel Energy's Conservation Improvement Program.

Xcel Energy is also proud to announce a new partnership 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.

"This program provides a convenient and environmentally safe solution for our customers," says Christmas Ramirez, Xcel Energy program manager. "There is no lugging to the curb for pickup, we're providing two free compact fluorescent light bulbs during the visit and we'll give you a $50 rebate. All you have to do is call between now and August 31."

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, according to ENERGY STAR®.  

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please visit ResponsibleByNature.com/Fridge or call (800) 599-5795. Participation in this program is subject to important rules and eligibility requirements, which are detailed at ResponsibleByNature.com/Fridge.
