Over 1,000 Dehumidifiers Recycled (and Counting)
August 08, 2017
Since 2015, the sponsors of Mass Save have been working with local communities and retailers to host recycling events at which residents can turn in old, inefficient dehumidifiers. These events have provided an opportunity for participants to safely recycle old dehumidifiers at no-cost, plus receive a $30 rebate for turning in an old unit. The response from community partners and residents has surpassed expectations and, this summer, an important milestone was reached: the one thousandth dehumidifier was recycled!
Recycling an old dehumidifier and upgrading to a modern, ENERGY STAR® certified model is a convenient way to decrease household energy use. Because they run continuously, dehumidifiers often use more energy than any other home appliance, aside from refrigerators. Switching to an ENERGY STAR certified model can help moderate this energy use, since certified units use over 25% less energy than a similarly-sized conventional model, while still removing the same amount of moisture from the air. Plus, you can also earn a $30 rebate on a new dehumidifier if you purchase a qualifying model.
Interested in recycling your old dehumidifier? Additional recycling events are already scheduled for this fall. Visit MassSave.com/DehumidifierTurnIn to find an event near you, and help us reach over 2,000 dehumidifiers recycled before year-end!
