Really cool news about our fridge and freezer program

Posted | September 8, 2015

Sound the trumpets! LG&E and KU’s Fridge and Freezer Recycling Program has reached a significant milestone: More than 25,000 units have been recycled since the program began in 2012.

According to ENERGY STAR®, refrigerators 15 years or older use twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR certified model. This means our customers are paying money because old appliances are much less energy-efficient than newer models. The good news is that LG&E and KU will haul old fridges or freezers away, properly recycle the appliances and pay participating customers $50. The only rules are the appliance has to be full-size (at least 7.75 cubic feet), in working order, empty and accessible for removal. That’s it.
