I picked up a couple of appliances on Freecycle last year and it was a take
it all deal so I ended up with the stove too. I had planned to give it to
someone else but a couple of guys saw it outside and knocked on the door to
ask if they could have it to salvage. As I had no idea if it really worked I
told them it might work and let them take it. So maybe someone will take
other appliances in a similar mannor?


I am sure that PPL's thing is that they are trying to encourage people to
use more efficient appliances, rather than paying for broken ones to be
hauled away.

I have no idea. Hope to be able to ask tomorrow. Most recycle places that I 
know of strip down the product and salvage everything that they can. It does

not make sense why it must be in working order.
