Last Chance to Recycle Your Fridge for Free — Sept. 30
August 25, 2016
SaskPower has extended the deadline for its fridge recycling program to September 30, giving customers more opportunity to recycle their old, inefficient fridges. This is the program's final year.
"For those people with an older fridge or freezer at home, this is your last chance to have us pick up the unit for free and take advantage of saving up to $130 a year on your power bill," says SaskPower Director of Customer Programs Janson Anderson. "We want to extend the opportunity for people to recycle as many fridges and freezers as they can, before the program ends."
Since 2010, more than 33,000 fridges and freezers have been recycled through the program, keeping harmful chemicals like Freon and mercury out of landfills. That number represents a large majority of the most inefficient fridges and freezers in Saskatchewan and because of that, SaskPower is turning to the development of new programs that will help customers to save power and money.
"SaskPower offers a range of programs to help homeowners and businesses save power and money. This fall, SaskPower will again be offering the Lighting Discount Program in communities across the province," explains Anderson.
Customers can schedule their pick up by calling 1-877-SKRECYCLE (1-877-757-3292) or book online at saskpower.com. #SkSaveNow
