MADISON - Focus on Energy is looking for Wisconsin's oldest refrigerator. 

"The customer with the oldest refrigerator recycled from Focus on Energy will win a $1,000 prize and the title of Wisconsin's Oldest Refrigerator. The winner will be announced in September," the company announced. "In addition to the contest, anyone who recycles a secondary refrigerator or freezer will earn the $50 reward and can save up to $150 a year in energy costs."

The recycling program is year-round, but they are looking for the oldest refrigerator until Aug. 31. The company said refrigerators manufactured before 1990 can use up to three times more electricity than new appliances.

Wisconsin residents can schedule a free pickup by calling 1-855-398-5226 or visiting focusonenergy.com/appliance. Find more information on the program at the link.
