RE: [GreenYes] question about old refridgerators
Hmmm, let's see....

Take the door off, flip it over on its back, and plant flowers in it.  
Or, fill it with water and add a couple of goldfish.
Put it in the basement and use it to store dry goods or paint cans or
something.
Ignore it and see if it goes away (one of my favorites :-) )
Get 4 strong friends, load it up and take it to a reputable scrap metal
dealer for the $12. ($3 per friend!)

Another question for the list:  would the old fridge have a lot of freon
left in it?  That would have to be recovered (hence the "reputable" part
above)

OK, enough.  Back to work for me.

Subject:	[GreenYes] question about old refridgerators

Gentlepeople,
	When my wife and I bought our hourse, we inherited an old
refridgerator.  I'm guessing it's from the 50s or 60s.  Obviously it's not
quite efficient.
	I called our Electric Company and they no longer have rebates or
credits and they don't pick them up.  In fact, they suggested I donate it to
a charity!?
	What is the best enviro-friendly way for me to dispose of this
thing?
		Thanks!

Tom

p.s. I'm in Wisconsin, USA
