The old refrigerator in your garage or basement could be worth $1,000.

Wisconsin's Focus on Energy program is offering $1,000 to the person who turns in the oldest refrigerator in the state. The contest is meant to encourage households to recycle old, energy-inefficient appliances.

Thus far, it has collected about 11,000 refrigerators. The goal is to recycle 16,000.

About 20 percent of Wisconsin homes have a second refrigerator and many are energy wasters.
