Traverse City Light & Power (TCL&P) customers have the opportunity to recycle inefficient, yet still working, dehumidifiers, room air conditioners and refrigerators for FREE at the Clean Up and Green Up event on November 4. TCL&P will give customers a $15 credit on their next electric bill for recycling a dehumidifier or room air conditioner and a $60 credit for recycling a refrigerator.
TCL&P is partnering with the Michigan Green Consortium for the biannual Clean Up and Green Up event that will be held in Traverse City from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 280 Hughes Drive, the former Tower Automotive facility, and home to American Waste’s solid waste handling facility.
While all community members can participate by recycling both working and non-working units, in order to qualify for the bill credit, participants must be a TCL&P customers and the units turned in must still be in working condition, as required by the Michigan Public Service Commission’s State Energy Optimization program. Customers are asked to bring a copy of their electric bill to receive the credit.
TCL&P will also be providing rebate information on other incentives, which include rebates for purchasing a new dehumidifier, air conditioner or refrigerator.
The Clean Up and Green Up event is a free community-wide recycling event that encourages local residents to bring in difficult-to-recycle items that have salvageable components or materials that can be repurposed or reused.
