This program helps customers save money by eliminating older, less-efficient appliances. Ultimately, this means less need for new power plants which reduces the environmental impact of energy generation. The appliances are recycled in an environmentally responsible manner and are not returned to the used appliance market.
Approximately 95 percent of each unit is recycled by JACO Environmental at their recycling facility, following guidelines from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). JACO safely disposes of toxins and ozone-destroying chlorofluorocarbon (CFC-11) gases from foam insulation. After capturing toxins (oils, mercury, pcbs) and ozone-depleting substances (CFC 11 and other foam insulation blowing agents and CFC 12 and other refrigerants) the program recycles all the plastic, metals and glass in the fridge, thus limiting landfill waste.
