As part of Earth Week, celebrate with us at Jaco Ecosolutions (1215 Gateway Road) for a one day recycling blitz of cooling appliances on Saturday, April 25 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Refrigerators and other cooling appliances (freezers, coolers, dehumidifiers, air conditioners and heat pumps) can have a major impact on the environment at the end of their service life, leading to depletion of the ozone layer and global warming. Drop off your old cooling appliance and Jaco Ecosolutions will recycle them responsibly.
While you're there, find out how you can be Power Smart and reduce your environmental impact. Qualifying customers may receive a FREE Water and Energy Saver Kit.
Saving water means saving energy. Reducing hot water consumption will reduce the amount of energy required to heat your water. Reduce your water consumption by up to 60 per cent by installing water and energy efficient showerheads and faucet aerators. LED bulbs use up to 80 per cent less electricity and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
Emissions reduced by Manitobans being Power Smart is equivalent to the removal of 373,870 cars from the road for one year.
From April 1, 1989 to March 31, 2014. Electrical energy savings = 2,512 GWh.
Natural gas energy savings = 93 million m3. Emissions reduction of 1,871,481 tonnes of C02e.
