National Grid increases incentive for customers to recycle refrigerators, freezers

The ubiquitous garage or basement refrigerator that chilled many a summer beverage. The old freezer full of icy bricks of who-knows-what dating back to who-knows-when? They probably seemed like a good idea at one time, but now they pose a substantial burden to your electric bill.
