L&P Rewarding Rebate to Customers Who Recycle Working Dehumidifiers and Air Conditioners
Traverse City Light & Power (L&P) is providing an opportunity for customers to recycle their inefficient, yet still working, dehumidifiers and air conditioners at the Clean Up and Green Up event on November 6 and receive a $15 credit on their next electric bill. Normally it could cost up to $25 to recycle an old dehumidifier or air conditioner. Turning in your old unit at this event is free and you’ll also receive a $15 credit on your L&P bill.
L&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 new 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 $15 bill credit from L&P, participants must be L&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.
L&P will also be providing rebate information on other incentives, which include rebates for purchasing a new dehumidifier or air conditioner.
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.
