Holy Cross recycling refrigerators

Holy Cross Energy will offer free pickup and recycling of working refrigerators.”This limited-time, free pickup and recycling program offers our consumers an incentive to replace their existing refrigerator with a new energy-efficient model or eliminate a little-used second refrigerator sitting in a garage or basement,” said Holy Cross spokesman Robert Gardner.Consumers who replace an existing refrigerator with a new Energy Star model can also apply for a $75 cash incentive from Holy Cross. Energy-efficient models use less energy, and the elimination of an unneeded refrigerator could save consumers up to $200 a year.This program is part of Holy Cross’s voluntary carbon-reduction effort.Holy Cross has contracted with JACO Environmental Inc. to handle the refrigerator pickup and recycling. Holy Cross consumers can schedule a pickup by contacting JACO at (877) 577-0510 or visiting http://www.appliancerecycling.com.More information is available at http://www.holycross.com.JACO processes the refrigerators at its recycling facilities in Salt Lake City according to EPA guidelines. About 95 percent of each refrigerator is recycled. Chlorofluorocarbon gases in the cooling circuit and from the foam insulation are captured and recycled or destroyed.Holy Cross Energy is a nonprofit, member-owned electric cooperative utility serving more than 50,000 accounts in Eagle, Garfield, Gunnison and Pitkin counties.
