Dominion Virginia Power Resumes Appliance Recycling Program
Dominion Virginia Power has resumed its Residential Appliance Recycling Program. Customers can enroll in the program and have their old, operational refrigerators and freezers picked up and recycled at no cost to them.
In addition to receiving a $50 incentive from Dominion, consumers have the opportunity to save energy by removing inefficient appliances from service. “The program helps save energy costs, and lessens the environmental impact of appliance disposal,” said Brett Crable, director-New Technology and Energy Conservation.
To qualify for the program, refrigerators and freezers must:
– range from 10 to 32 cubic feet in capacity
– be at least 10 years of age
– be operational and empty at the time of pickup.
Schedule an appointment with Dominion’s contractor, Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA), either online at ARCA or by phone at 1-888-366-8280.
ARCA will call the customer to schedule a pickup date and time.
Following the pickup, a $50 check will be mailed to the customer.
Customers are eligible to recycle two qualifying appliances per account over the life of the program.
After appliance pickup, Dominion’s contractor will disable the unit, recycle the applicable components, and properly dispose of the refrigerant chemicals.
