Efficiency Vermont's Refrigerator Recycling Rebate Program
July 22, 2009

A Vermont nonprofit hoping to save energy and reduce pollution launched a program Wednesday that pays $30 for old refrigerators and recycles their usable parts. The first refrigerator was collected from the Swanton home of Ellsworth Moore in front of television and newspaper crews in the hopes of publicizing the Efficiency Vermont program that wants to collect about 3,000 refrigerators and freezers a year from Vermont homes.
