Refrigerator/Freezer Recycling Rebates
In celebration of Earth Week, EEA sponsors the Refrigerator Recycling Event each April. Certificates are required to accompany recycled units and can be downloaded here or picked up at our business office located at 801 N. Broadway, Cortez. Following the event, the certified recycling centers will turn in proof of receipt to EEA and each participating member will receive a $60 credit on their electric bill. Please allow up to two billing cycles to receive a credit following this event.
