REFRIGERATOR & AIR CONDITIONER RECYCLING PROGRAM
Please see the link below for more information:
  http://www.jacoinc.net/

Program Requirements

  • The refrigerator or freezer must be clean, empty, defrosted, and in working condition.
  • The refrigerator or freezer unit must be between 10 and 30 cubic feet.
  • You must be a Pennsylvania residential customer of Met-Ed, Penelec, PennPower or West Penn Power.
  • There is a limit of two refrigerators or freezers and two room size air conditioners per household per calendar year.
  • If you are recycling one side-by-side refrigerator, it will be considered as one appliance for recycling. It will not be counted as two separate units.
  • AC units must be included with a qualifying refrigerator or freezer to qualify for pickup.
  • The customer must own the unit(s) being recycled.
  • An adult, 18 years of age or older, must be present to sign and release the unit at the time of the pickup.
  • Recycling appliance must be disconnected from waterlines prior to the pickup crew's arrival.
  • The unit needs to be plugged in and running on the day of the pickup.

You must provide clear and safe access to your appliances for the removal team. JACO will not risk injury or be able to move personal effects or modify your home(e.g.: remove door or railings) to remove the unit(s)

Why participation is important to you

1. Old refrigerators and freezers are not bio-degradable and contain many materials that can be recycled and some that are harmful to the environment.
2. The rebate you will receive for a working refrigerator or freezer will be $50.
You can also receive $25 for a working air conditioner. Checks should be received approximately 4 to 6 weeks after pick up.
AC units must be included with a qualifying refrigerator or freezer to qualify for pickup.
3. Old refrigerators and freezers typically use two times more electricity than newer models that are being produced today. If everybody tries to do their part to conserve energy and to recycle responsibly, this could help manage our energy resources well into the future.


The Appliance Turn In Program.

Again, for your efforts to recycle responsibly, you will receive a $50 check for your working refrigerator or freezer - and a $25 check for a working room air conditioner approximately 4 to 6 weeks after pick up.

By participating in this program, Customer agrees to allow the local utility to take ownership of the Energy Efficiency resource credits associated with the measures generated through this program. Your local utility may at its sole discretion then aggregate your credits with other similarly situated customers and bid the credits into the PJM market through an auction. Any proceeds from any such bids accepted by PJM will be used to offset the costs charged to the utility’s customers for compliance with state mandated energy efficiency and/or peak demand requirements.

 If you have any questions about the program, or if you would like to schedule your pick up date by phone, please feel free to contact JACO's customer service center toll free at 877-270-3521. This program will continue until further notice or until funding is exhausted. Program is subject to change or termination without prior notice.
