If you live in the Lone Star State, and you have an extra refrigerator on the porch (or in the burn/shootin' pile), why not turn it into cash?  Thanks to a recycling program offered by Xcel Energy, Texas customers can get that old unit pick up and get $50! That's right, you can turn your grandma's old Frigidaire into a cool fifty and you don't have to lift a finger!

The electricity company is pushing its customers to use newer, more energy efficient appliances in order to help them lower their electric bill and to reduce the overall load on the power grid.  If you are a customer, and you would like to schedule a pickup (and payday) by calling the company contracted with recycling the old appliances (ARCA), call1-888-564-7003.
