Put a freeze on your energy bill this winter!
Cessnock City Council is encouraging residents to take advantage of the Fridge Buyback scheme as the rebate has increased as of July 1.
The initiative is about cutting down your power bill and reducing the impact high power usage has on the environment by giving up your working second fridge or upright freezer.
Old fridges and freezers are some of the biggest energy users in the home, consuming up to three times the energy of newer appliances. It is estimated to add an extra $300 to your power bill and results in one tonne of carbon pollution each year.
Free collection is now available under the Fridge Buyback Scheme with the rebate now increased to $25.
Cessnock City Council urges residents to consider if they are eligible for this waste smart initiative.
