Manitoba Hydro is offering you a favorable and convenient way to dispose of your old fridge. This scheme is through the Power Smart Refrigerator Retirement Program.
What is a Manitoba Hydro Refrigerator Rebate?
Sometimes, disposal of your refrigerators after acquiring a new unit can be a problem. However, the Power Smart Refrigerator Retirement Program of Manitoba Hydro will do the work for you. Also, you may earn a $50 per unit they collect.
Manitoba Hydro recycles these products. Recycling is critical to lessen the pollutants in our environment. Plastics are made into pots, copper into copper wires and aluminum into some car parts. The oil is drilled and tipped to drain. The shell of the fridge is crushed and shredded that are used for bridges.
