Utilities offering $30 for used appliances

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - People in 79 Kentucky counties can make a
few extra bucks if they're ready to get rid of an old refrigerator.
Louisville Gas and Electric Co. and Kentucky Utilities Co. are
giving $30 for a properly recycled refrigerator or freezer.
The companies say older-model units use nearly twice the energy
each year compared with new refrigerators. The companies' energy
efficiency director, David Huff, says the project will not only
reduce customers' energy usage but also keep appliances out of
landfills. Huff says almost every part of the appliances will be
disassembled and recycled.
A trained collection team will come out to pick up the
appliance, and residential customers can recycle up to two in one
year.
