Cape Light Compact is offering a $100 rebate to residential and small business electric customers who sign up to recycle an old refrigerator or freezer.

Available through Friday, June 15, this limited-time offer is double the traditional rebate amount of $50 per unit.

Customers can schedule a pickup online at www.capelightcompact.org or by phone at 1-877-889-4761, and an authorized vendor will pick up the unit at no-cost.

The vendor will remove the unit for you and ensure it is safely and responsibly recycled. Customers that schedule a pickup during the limited-time promotion period will receive a $100 rebate in the mail. Units must also be have been scheduled for pickup by July 31 to receive the $100 rebate.

To be eligible for this offer, units must be between 10 and 30 cubic feet, and must be plugged in, clean, and working when the vendor arrives. Customers must provide a clear path for removal, and an adult age 18 or older must be present at pickup.

Cape Light Compact will provide a rebate on up to two units per residential or commercial electric account per calendar year, and customers cannot combine rebates with any other energy efficiency offer.

Old refrigerators and freezers use significantly more energy than new, ENERGY STAR® certified models. Moveover, participating in this program ensures your unit will be disposed of responsibly.

Over 95 percent of materials that make up your unit -- such as copper, steel, glass, and plastic -- will be recycled, instead of ending up in a landfill. Additionally, all potentially hazardous components -- including refrigerant, oil, and mercury -- will be safely handled for appropriate reuse or disposal.

Although customers that schedule a pickup after the promotion period will still be eligible for the standard $50 rebate, only those who call to schedule or signup online during the promotion timeframe are eligible for the $100 rebate.
