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.
