Oldest fridge in WI could win $1,000 in contest


FRANKLIN (WKOW) -- The old refrigerator in your garage or basement could be worth $1,000. 

Wisconsin's Focus on Energy program is offering $1,000 to the person who turns in the oldest refrigerator in the state. The contest is meant to encourage households to recycle old, energy-inefficient appliances. 

So far, it has collected about 11,000 refrigerators. The goal is to recycle 16,000. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports about 20 percent of Wisconsin homes have a second refrigerator and many are energy wasters.
