(KFVS) - Ameren Illinois residents can help nonprofits earn money by recycling a spare refrigerator or freezer now through Dec. 31.
When customers recycle their spare appliances, through the ActOnEnergy program, the participating nonprofit organization of the customer's choice will receive a $20 contribution, which is double the regular amount.
“We have designed the Referral Bonus program to help nonprofits easily earn extra dollars, while giving our customers an added incentive to become more energy efficient,” said Stan Ogden, Ameren Illinois vice president of Customer Service & Public Relations. “This program also is good for the environment. Getting these old refrigerators out of garages and basements and off the grid will help reduce power plant emissions because customers will be using less electricity."
