Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Friday, November 22nd, 2019

National Recycling Month is quickly coming to an end, but it’s not too late for customers to take advantage of Dominion Energy’s Appliance Recycling Program promotion. Residential electric customers can turn their old, secondary refrigerators and/or freezers into cash through the program. Customers who schedule their pick-up to take place between now and Dec. 31 will automatically be entered to win one of three Smart Prize packs valued at $500.

Each Smart Prize Pack includes:

Nest Learning Thermostat,

Second-generation Amazon Echo Show SMART Speaker, and

Five energy-efficient LED (Light-Emitting Diode) bulbs.

“The Appliance Recycling Program helps customers save energy and money, it also includes the convenience of a free pick-up and $50 cash back per unit for up to two eligible appliances,” said Gerald Freeman, program manager of Dominion Energy South Carolina’s Appliance Recycling Program.

Since 2014, over 13,000 appliances have been recycled through the program, offering each participant the opportunity to save up to $105 annually on their electric bill. Those 13,000 appliances represent:

184,600 pounds of plastic,

38,480 pounds of glass, and

1,857 garbage trucks of waste

“Not only is this an opportunity for customers to receive a rebate and enter to win a prize pack, it is a way for them to join us in our effort to be good environmental stewards,” Freeman said. “We are a partner in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Responsible Appliance Disposal program, meaning we follow best practices available and go beyond what the federal law requires.”

Only full-size appliances in working condition are accepted. Customers may visit DominionEnergySC.com/Recycle for complete details, including a short video on the recycling process and what to expect on pickup-day call, or call 877-510-7234 for assistance.
