Round 'Em Up

by - Sunday, April 20, 2008

We're on week two of our ten-week kitchen renovation. And while we have a workable temporary kitchen set up, the novelty of running up and down the stairs between the kitchen in the basement and the refrigerator which sits in the dining room is getting old - really fast. But once the reno is over, we'll have to get rid of the old fridge. Lucky for us, we won't have to do any heavy lifting, thanks to The Great Refrigerator Roundup.

This program, run by the province of Ontario, aims to remove older, inefficient fridges and freezers from the electricity system. So not only do we get our trash taken out for free, get electricity savings, but we also ensure that these appliance relics aren't resold and put back into the market wasting energy. Sweet. In the meantime, I'll just waste my energy running up and down the stairs...

  1. Do you know if they recycle the old ones or just send them to the dump? My city dones nothing of the sort.

  2. They take the old fridges apart and recycle what they can, dispose of the chemicals properly, and send the rest to the dump. Every bit helps :)
