All residents and businesses in South Santa Barbara County that want to replace their older working refrigerator or freezer with a more energy-efficient appliance or dispose of a spare are encouraged to register.
In addition to picking up old, working units and recycling them, SCE will pay $35 for a refrigerator and $35 for a freezer. Old appliances are dismantled at a recycling center where the metals and refrigerants are removed in an environmentally safe manner.
To register to participate in the pick-up, residents and businesses should visit SCEEP.org
or call 800-234-9722. SCE will visit the qualifying home or business to haul away the old refrigerator or freezer. Participants will then receive a $35 check in the mail. To qualify, refrigerators or freezers must be in working (e.g., cooling) order, between 10 and 32 cubic feet in size, and located at a valid SCE billing address within the SCE territory.
Pickup and incentive is limited to a total of two refrigerators or freezer units per location per year. For more information, visit SCEEP.org
May 18 and May 19 between the hours of 7 AM and 7 PM.
