A new California state program exchanges washers, refrigerators and room air conditioners for cash. The program launched on the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, Thursday, April 22 and ends Sunday, May 23. So far, 21,000 applications await a rebate from the California Energy Commission and there is still funding left, though program officials said those interested should sign up quickly.

Consumers who buy appliances during the rebate period and recycle the old ones must file an application within 30 days of the purchase for the rebate. Newly-bought appliances must be California-eligible, and you have to sign a form that the certified recycler mails in.
