Recycle Today Save Tomorrow
Our aquamarine Frigidaire refrigerator has been around since the Eisenhower Administration. It came with the house we purchased in Hollywood Park a few years ago. The fridge had a lot of “vintage” charm to it. It’s actually made by General Motors….so it’s outlasted most of the GM cars. Recently, it’s been making some loud rattling that competed with the noise of the leaf blower guy. But hey, it still worked!
Then we found out about a refrigerator recycling program offered by SMUD. Wanna save money while you save the environment? Recycle your old power-hungry refrigerator and SMUD will pick it up for free, plus they’ll give you a $35 rebate. Since our fridge is “old-school” it was sucking up gobs of energy which also means it was sucking up gobs of our money. According to SMUD, recycling your old fridge can save you up to $125 per year on energy costs.
We decided it was time to “put down the old Frigidaire” and help the environment at the same time. For a pick-up call 1-800-299-7573 or visit www.smud.org for more details. SMUD contracts with JACO environmental , an appliance recycler. They sent Manuel out to our house to “put down” the old Frigidaire.
