Program Complete - 7,590 Refrigerators Recycled
Thank you for your interest in the Refrigerator Recycling program at OPPD. Due to an overwhelming response and limited resources, we are no longer able to take applications for the program.
Thank you to all those who participated in the program.
Thanks to your efforts, we were able to:
- Recycle 7,590 old, inefficient refrigerators and freezers from 2010 to 2013 (over 95 percent of the refrigerator materials were recycled).
- Defer 462 tons of metal, glass and plastic from area landfills.
- Save 5,285,875 kWh of electricity per year.
Funding for the program came from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality Waste Reduction and Recycling Incentive Grants Program, which is co-sponsored the program with OPPD.
2013 was the last year for the Refrigerator Recycling Program. Thank you for your support!
