If that old refrigerator of yours is past its prime and struggling to chill your beer and bratwurst, here are some cold facts.
PPL will take away that energy-hogging relic at no charge and send you a check for $35. You’ll also be helping the environment because the various parts of that icebox — including metal, glass, oil and insulation — get recovered and put to use making other products. Plus, the appliance doesn’t end up in a landfill.
