JACO Environmental runs the new facility in Grand Rapids.  They have teamed with Consumers Energy to offer a $30 rebate to those that recycle.  They will even pick up the appliance at your house.

  2. The unit must meet the size requirement which is 10 cubic feet - 30 cubic feet.
  3. You must be a current electric customer of Consumers Energy.
