MINNEAPOLIS, MN — The Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (ARCA) has entered into a contract with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to operate a refrigerator/freezer/room air conditioner recycling program in San Diego and surrounding areas as well as a six-county region in California’s Central Valley, including the cities of Fresno and Stockton.

The Appliance Early Retirement and Recycling Program will expand to the seven-county Bay Area when the current Summer Initiative energy conservation program, which is also operated by ARCA, is fully subscribed this summer.

The CPUC has budgeted $14 million to fund the recycling program. The budget allocation includes $50 incentive payments to participants for refrigerators and freezers, and $25 incentive payments for room air conditioners. Initial significant revenues from the new program are anticipated later in this year’s second half. The program is a one-year contract through May 31, 2002.
