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 AEPOhio.com/Rebates 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.
