GREEN BAY - Looking to get rid of your old appliance? You could get paid to do so.
It's part of a new recycling program.
Thursday morning, crews picked up an old working refrigerator from a Green Bay home.
The owner received a $30 reward, which can be put towards a new high-efficiency one instead.
Those participating in the pick-up say the program saves money and the environment.
"Older refrigerators, second refrigerators use two to three times as much energy as modern refrigerators and taking those appliances off the electric grid not only saves customers money, but helps reduce the need to build power plants," said Rich Marshall, manager of recycling program.
The appliances will be transported to the Focus on Energy recycling center in Franklin, which is south of Milwaukee.
Wisconsin residents can schedule a free pickup by calling (855) 398-5226 or visiting focusonenergy.com/appliance.
