DP&L offers rebates for appliances

Staff report

DAYTON — The Dayton Power and Light Company (DP&L), is offering rebates to customers for recycling inefficient appliances. Replacing older appliances saves on energy costs and helps protect the environment.

DP&L will rebate customers $50 for each working refrigerator or freezer and $20 for room air conditioners and dehumidifiers. The room air conditioners and dehumidifiers will be collected only during pick-ups of refrigerators and freezers at the same location. Refrigerators and freezers must be 10-30 cubic feet. Residential and business customers may recycle appliances. All units collected must be standard-sized, not commercial, appliances.

The rebate for recycling appliances is part of DP&L’s ongoing energy efficiency efforts for customers, which also include rebates on new heat pumps and air conditioners, discounts on energy-efficient lighting and rebates for business customers.

Customers may make appointments to have old appliances picked up at no charge by calling 877-889-4765 or visiting www.dpandl.com/recycle.

DP&L is partnering with a new vendor ARCA Inc., an international company with 40 years of innovation and experience in energy efficiency and responsible appliance disposal, providing customers with an easy and responsible method to recycle old, inefficient refrigerators and freezers, as well as select small appliances. ARCA’s recycling centers salvage materials in refrigerators and freezers with the goal of protecting natural resources from the environmentally-damaging substances found in older appliances.
