Georgia Power's not so great refrigerator recycling program
Georgia Power has a refrigerator recycling program. The supposed deal is they give you $35 for an old refrigerator when you replace it with a new efficient one. What they don't tell you is that when you call the number on their website it rings an out of state third party contractor. I called the number and got the third party company who wasn't even aware that the Georgia Power number was forwarding to their phone. When I asked where they were located she said "the west coast". I don't think I should need to call the "west coast" to have a refrigerator removed from my house in Georgia. I called a local company instead who came and picked up the refrigerator for free.
