Free Haul-Away of Your Old Fridge or Freezer
Everett, WA — Recycle your old fridge or freezer this spring or summer, and you’ll have a chance to double your savings. Getting rid of an energy-wasting unit can save you up to $200 in energy costs annually. If you recycle a fridge/freezer before July 31, you’ll be automatically entered in monthly drawings for a chance to win $200 off your PUD bill. Plus you’ll be eligible to win weekly drawings for LED lighting packets (valued at $50 each). Start your spring cleaning by getting rid of your fridge/freezer – you’ll create some extra storage space and start saving!
How to Recycle Your Appliance
Requirements: To have a refrigerator or freezer picked up and recycled, it needs to be in working condition and 10 to 32 cubic feet in size. The program is for Snohomish County PUD customers only. Customers must own the unit(s) being recycled, with a pickup limit of two units per account.
To schedule a free pick-up, Snohomish County PUD customers should call JACO Environmental toll-free 1-877-577-0510. To help process your request, please have your PUD account number available. Some restrictions apply for the prize drawings. Rules and details are available at www.snopud.com/fridgerecycling.
Other Energy Savers
Many PUD weatherization incentives have increased this year. The utility can help you cover costs for duct sealing and insulation, heat pumps and efficient windows (for electrically heated homes). Install a ductless heat pump, for example, and you’ll receive a rebate of up to $1,200. These units not only reduce your PUD bill, but they also improve comfort in your home. The utility also offers discounts on compact fluorescent light bulbs and LEDs. For more information, call the PUD Energy Hotline at 425-783-1700 or visit www.snopud.com (click on Conservation).
