To help customers reduce waste and save energy and money, Fort Collins Utilities offers a $35 rebate to residents who recycle their older, inefficient refrigerator or freezer. Utilities will even arrange to have it picked up for free.
Upcoming pick-up dates are April 3, 13 and 24; May 9 and 25; and June 6 and 22. Call (970) 221-6700 to sign up.
Today’s units save 50 to 80 percent in energy costs when compared to older models, and approximately 98 percent of the appliances are comprehensively recycled—keeping the material out of the landfill.
