Does your refrig­er­a­tor look like some­thing out of the old Jackie Glea­son show? Or maybe I Love Lucy?

Well, it doesn’t have to be so old as to be called and ice­box, but if you have an older refrig­er­a­tor, you could just be a win­ner.

AEP Ohio is join­ing forces with other util­i­ties through­out the state to kick off Ohio’s old­est refrig­er­a­tor con­test. The win­ner will receive over $1,000 in prizes for recy­cling the state’s most ancient refrig­er­a­tor.

To take part in the con­test, cus­tomers must sign up to have their refrig­er­a­tor or freezer recy­cled by call­ing 877–545-4112 or vis­it­ing through July 31. Refrig­er­a­tors and freez­ers must be in work­ing order.

The cus­tomer with the old­est refrig­er­a­tor recy­cled from AEP Ohio will win a $250 gift card and go on to rep­re­sent the util­ity for the title of Ohio’s old­est refrig­er­a­tor. Another $1,000 gift card will go to the win­ner with the old­est refrig­er­a­tor in the state. That win­ner will be announced in August.

In addi­tion to the con­test, any­one who recy­cles a sec­ondary refrig­er­a­tor or freezer will earn the $50 incen­tive and can save up to $150 a year in energy costs. While the recy­cling pro­gram is avail­able year-round, the con­test for over $1,000 in prizes is lim­ited and only runs through July 31.
