Incentives include $50 rebate, free pickup and improved energy efficiency

CAYCE, SC – Recycling old, secondary refrigerators and freezers just got easier. SCE&G’s new appliance recycling program for residential electric customers offers $50 cash back and free pickup of up to two refrigerators or freezers in working condition and between 10 and 30 cubic feet.

“In addition to receiving $50 per appliance and a free pickup, SCE&G customers could see up to $150 in energy savings annually,” said Therese Griffin, manager of SCE&G’s demand side management and energy efficiency programs. “It also helps protect the environment by making sure old appliances are recycled in an environmentally friendly way.”

Only SCE&G residential electric customers are eligible for the appliance recycling program. For more information on the offer, visit or call 1-877-510-7234.

The appliance recycling program is one of many ways SCE&G is educating customers on how to save on their energy bills. For example, through SCE&G’s online EnergyWise Savings Store, customers can now order five LED light bulbs for $5 with a flat-rate shipping cost of $5.
