A major milestone in recycling

Posted | November 11, 2014

The Fridge and Freezer Recycling program reaches 20,000 mark; more than three million pounds of metal and plastic have been recycled rather than placed in a landfill

The numbers don’t lie. Our Fridge and Freezer Recycling program has been a huge success. And we have you to thank.

In just two years, residential electric customers have offered up 20,000 refrigerators and freezers for recycling through the program.

That’s a big number, but what does it really mean?

It’s the equivalent of more than 15,000 megawatt-hours offset – enough energy to power more than 1,200 homes for an entire year.

All told, more than three million pounds of metal and plastic have been recycled rather than placed in a landfill. That’s a number to be proud of.

Got an older, working refrigerator or freezer you’d like to recycle (and get a check for $50)? To get started, visit lge-ku.com/recycle or call 1-800-356-5467.
