ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

PPL is urging its customers to take part in a cool recycling program.

Since 2009, PPL has recycled more than 55,000 appliances as part of its E-Power Recycling program.

Company officials in Allentown on Tuesday cut apart an old refrigerator to show just how much can be recycled, and they said customers will save money in the long run by switching to more energy-efficient models.
