BLP hosting appliance recycling event Saturday

Through the Grand Haven Board of Light & Power's Energy Smart program, the local utility and Louis Padnos Iron & Metal have partnered to hold a recycling event for BLP customers on Saturday. It will be held at the Ottawa County parking lot on Franklin Avenue in Grand Haven, across the street from the County Courthouse, from 8 a.m. to noon. The BLP is supporting the event to help lower energy consumption while providing customers with rebate money that could be applied toward new energy-efficient appliances, BLP officials said.

Customers can bring their working window air conditioners and dehumidifiers to receive a $15 rebate per appliance. Customers are limited to bringing two of each appliance.

Rebates will be mailed to the customer name and address listed on their electric utility account. All appliances will be tested on-site to ensure they are in working order.

All parts of each appliance will be recycled by Louis Padnos Iron & Metal.

There's easily 25 dollars worth of scrap metal in an air conditioner or dehumidifier.
