Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (ARCA) announced that it has been awarded a contract by Southern California Edison Company (Edison) for supporting California’s 2003 statewide recycling program in the territories served by Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric.
Since Jan. 1, 2003, the company has been handling appliance recycling operations for this energy conservation initiative under an extension of the 2002 program. The 2003 program is scheduled to run through Dec. 31 of this year.
According to Edward R. (Jack) Cameron, ARCA's president and chief executive officer, by taking older, inefficient, and working household appliances out of service, the recycling program has a proven track record at reducing electricity consumption and controlling the need for building costly new power generation facilities.
