What Should You Do with Old Appliances?

Old appliances take up a lot of space, inconvenient and maybe even a safety or environmental hazard if not disposed of properly. When you need to get rid of an old appliance, consider the following before disposing of them using a waste removal dumpster.

What to Do with Working Appliances

One option is to keep it. Perhaps you’d like to have an old refrigerator available for extra food storage in a garage or basement.

Working appliances also have some value on the resale market or just to donate to people or an organization in need. You can clean the appliance up and advertise it on a local sales site such as Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. If the price is low enough, you will find someone who would be willing to take it off of your hands. If you don’t want to sell it, you can always advertise it as free on one of these sites, or even post it on your local freecycle.org site. This is a market where you can find someone who is looking for an appliance or where you can post it for someone else to find. With patience and a little luck, you may find a new good home for your old appliance from someone who will appreciate it.

What to Do with Non-Working Appliances

You can still post it on the sites listed above. There may be someone else who knows a little about appliance repair who might be willing to take the appliance off of your hands. You might also look for a local recycling center or a charity that accepts old appliances.

You can also tear apart on old appliance and sell it for scrap metal, but most appliances have a lot of parts within them and many of them can be toxic or hazardous to the environment. Many old appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners or dehumidifiers use toxic, hazardous, and highly regulated chemicals that need to be handled by a certified technician and never by you. There are other parts within many modern appliances such as electronics, circuit boards, display panels and more which also may be harmful to you and the environment.

If You Can’t Get Rid of It Yourself

Large appliances are banned from being disposed of in landfills in many states so sometimes the only other option is to hire a dumpster rental company who are licensed to handle the disposal of appliances. Just make sure that you select a dumpster size that is large enough for containing your old appliances. A good dumpster rental company will make sure that the appliance is recycled properly and processed in a legal and environmentally safe manner.
