Holland Board of Public Works wins award for recycling event

Recycle Rewards was held in partnership with Louis Padnos Iron & Metal Company, Zeeland Board of Public Works, Consumers Energy and Grand Haven Board of Light and Power to collect air conditioner window units and dehumidifiers in the greater lakeshore area. Customers received rebate checks of $15 for each eligible appliance, up to $60. The first Recycle Rewards event held last fall collected 85 units, saving 3,356 KWh of energy. A second Recycle Rewards event was held June 2 with similar outcomes.

The Holland Board of Public Works is a community-owned enterprise providing utility services to more than 30,000 business and residential customers in the Holland area.
