Ameren Illinois celebrated a recycling milestone last week by collecting their 40-thousandth refrigerator unit for recycling. Ameren collects old units as part of their ActOnEnergy Refrigerator Recycling Program and spokesman Leigh Morris says that the program offers customers more than just a chance to get rid of an outdated appliance

Morris also says the program also benefits nonprofit organizations who will receive $10 every time a used refrigerator or freezer is picked up, through their ActOnEnergy Refrigerator Recycling Referral program.

Eligible Ameren Illinois electric customers can call 866-899-9088 or visit to schedule a pick up.
