Are you looking for an excuse to finally replace your old refrigerator and/or freezer? If you live in Fort Collins you have until the end of the month to get a double-rebate from the City of Fort Collins for doing just that!

Fort Collins offers a program to encourage residents to upgrade their old appliances to newer, more energy efficient models by offering free pickup of your old fridge or freezer, plus a $35 credit on your utility bill. But July through December, they double that rebate to $70.

Yup, you buy a new fridge the city will pick up your old one and give you 70-bucks. Pretty sweet deal.

You do need to have to have your pickup scheduled by the end of the year to qualify. Pick-up dates available for the double-debate are: Dec. 18, 21 and 27 as well as January 5, 16 and 26.

There are also a few restrictions in that you need to be a Fort Collins Utilities customer, you can only recycle up to two appliances, and the unit you recycle must be in working conditions, between 10-27 cubic feet.

Get more info from the Fort Collins Utilities webpage or by calling (970) 221-6700.[
