10,500 recycled units and counting!

UPDATE: Call me a nerd, but I just Google mapped it and as it turns out, the facility is in WARRENDALE, not Marshall.

Good news Pennsylvanians!

Yesterday was the launch of a brand new recycling facility in Marshall, PA  where twenty new jobs will be created. Power houses (pun intended) First Energy, Allegheny Power and Duquense Light have already recycled 10,500 units since the launch of their programs. (Remember this post?)

TEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED.

I feel like a broken record here, but that’s the same impact of removing 21,000 cars off the road for a year. That’s significant. It seems that the good residents of Pennsylvania are taking advantage of the $35 rebate as well as doing their part for the environment.

At the recycling facility, about 95% of the refrigerator gets recycled. Here’s a clip showing how the refrigerator gets broken down:

Here’s the news story.

Do your part.
