Old fridge may bring $50 rebate from West Penn Power
By Pittsburgh The Tribune-Review
Published: Wednesday, April 11, 2012
West Penn Power customers can get $50 cash rebates when they recycle old refrigerators, freezers and room air conditioners through the electric utility.
They also can save up to $150 a year by replacing the older, less efficient appliances with new Energy Star qualified equipment, said the company, part of FirstEnergy Corp.
Call 877-270-3521 to schedule a pickup; JACO Environmental, a contractor administering the program, will pick up and recycle the appliances. Customers are limited to recycling two appliances per year. The recycling effort is one of the utility's initiatives to comply with a state energy efficiency law.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
