Representatives from Georgia Power and JACO Environmental came on the morning show to talk about this recycling program.
The recycling program is designed to help customers learn to be more energy efficient. Georgia Power will come to your house and pick up your old appliance for no charge.
JACO Enviromental will recycle your appliance, and a $50 check will be mailed to you for helping out.
It is important that units are not thrown out in the landfill because PCB and mercury switches are harmful to the environment. Freon is legally required to be recycled because it can cause ozone depletion.
