Dayton Power & Light puts ‘bounty’ on Ohio’s oldest refrigerator

As part of an energy efficiency initiative, Dayton Power & Light is joining utilities throughout the state to kick off Ohio’s Oldest Refrigerator Contest. The winning customer gets a $1,250 prize for the state’s most ancient refrigerator or freezer.

To enter the contest, Dayton Power & Light customers have to sign up to have their refrigerator or freezer picked up for free and recycled.

The Dayton Power & Light customer with the oldest refrigerator recycled during the contest will win $250, and will compete for the title of Ohio‘s Oldest Refrigerator and another $1,000 award. The winner will be announced in August.

All customers who unplug and recycle an old, working refrigerator or freezer will earn a $35 incentive and can save up to $150 a year in energy costs. Dayton Power & Light’s recycling program and the $35 incentive is available year-round.
