BGE customers can get $25 for recycling old air-conditioning units

April 30, 2013|Jamie Smith Hopkins

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. said it will give $25 to each residential customer who recycles a working room air-conditioning unit at an event this weekend.

The utility said consumers can drop off the room units at two Sears locations, Eastpoint Mall in Dundalk and Hunt Valley Towne Centre in Cockeysville. BGE said workers will unload the units from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday (May 4) and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday (May 5).

BGE said it will pay $25 for each room air-conditioning unit -- up to two per customer -- as part of its Smart Energy Savers Program. Checks will be mailed about four weeks after the recycling event.

If you'd rather recycle a still-functioning refrigerator or freezer, you can schedule a pickup through BGERecycleMyOldFridge.com. BGE said it pays $50 for those appliances and hauls them away.
