New Rebate Program for Appliances

Got a clunker of an old refrigerator? Maybe an old energy hog of a freezer? Well, this fall a provision in the recovery act will kick in so you can get a brand new energy star appliance. They're billing it 'cash for appliances' and the Department of Energy will offer rebates of $50 to $200 for purchases of high efficiency household appliances, like refrigerators, dishwashers, and washers and dryers. KLFY has more details, and here is the Department of Energy full press release detailing what appliances are eligible.

Now, if you do get a new refrigerator and aren't quite sure what to do with the old one, Allied Waste does offer a large appliance and furniture pick-up once a month. Here's a handy map on the Lafayette Consolidated Government website to see when they pick up at your house and a complete list of what they do and do not accept.
