SCEEP Helps Recycle Record Number of Refrigerators/Freezers
The South County Energy Efficiency Partnership recycled a record number of refrigerators and freezers from its free refrigerator pickup days May 19-20.
Totals for recycled refrigerators and freezers from the free pickup were reported as follows (totals are for week of May 12-21):
» Santa Barbara — 30 refrigerators/freezers
» Carpinteria — 4 refrigerators/freezers
» Goleta — 7 refrigerators/freezers
» Summerland — 2 refrigerators/freezers
The volume was about double from a usual week in these areas. The old appliances will be dismantled and recycled in an environmentally safe manner.
All residents and businesses in southern Santa Barbara County who wanted to replace their older working refrigerator or freezer with a more energy-efficient appliance or dispose of a spare were encouraged to register. In addition to picking up old, working units and recycling them, SCE also paid $35 in incentives for each qualifying refrigerator and freezer. The pick-up day is one of many SCE programs hosted by the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership to help the region shift toward more energy-efficient technologies.
