Appliance Removal FAQs
Where can I donate a washer and dryer?
Unfortunately, most non-profit organizations no longer accept large appliances as donations. This is most commonly due to concerns of liability when these items are then given out to community members. We always recommend to reach out to local non-profit and charitable organizations to inquire as each one has different policies.
The easiest way to get rid of these items for free or on a budget is to bring them to an eco or transfer station in your local area or to take them directly to a scrap yard. Most eco/transfer stations have a flat rate which they charge to receive these items and some scrap yards will take these from you free of charge.
Where can I take old appliances?
When looking into your options of where to take your old appliances, there are typically a few venues we will recommend. First of all, if your items are in gently used shape, we suggest contacting a used appliance store. Sometimes these outfits will take your old appliances off your hands and refurbish them to be used again.
Otherwise, your best option will be to recycle the materials. This can often best be done by bringing the items to a local eco/transfer station or directly a local metal scrap recycler. This option will see the metals separated and sent to be reused in future steel products, however utilizing these services will require that you have the means to transport these items yourself and may possibly even incur a fee for recycling. Please check with your local facility and scrap yard for specific details.
Where to recycle microwave ovens?
Microwave ovens are what we would consider a “small” household appliance and fortunately, when in good condition, can sometimes be donated to local non-profit/charitable organizations. With a simple Google search in your local area, you may be able to find a list of locations to drop the item off for donation.
If the items aren’t suitable for donation (many organizations have different requirements for what is acceptable for donation), your next best option would be recycling. As an appliance, the materials it is built with can most often be recycled. This can be done most commonly at local eco or transfer stations, or even at your local metal scrap yard. These local options may require a fee, so we do suggest you contact your local recycler for more information.
How to dispose of a refrigerator for free?
Looking to get rid of your fridge on a tight budget, or no budget at all? This can often be a very difficult task. Because most older fridges are built to use freon as a refrigerant, it can be time-consuming and/or costly to properly recycle these items. Freon is a gas that when released into the atmosphere, can be very detrimental to our environment. This is why, if you have a local non-profit or charitable organization who accepts large appliances as donations, this would be your best option for getting rid of a fridge.
Otherwise, to properly dispose of a fridge, the freon gas must properly be removed and disposed of. This can often be done by local contractors who can safely remove the gas. Once the gas is removed, most scrap metal recyclers can take the fridge off your hands. If you would prefer more of a one-stop-shop, most eco or transfer stations can arrange for all of this to be done, however, they do charge a fee for the service.
Where to dispose of air conditioners?
Air conditioners are another difficult to dispose of appliance. Depending on the gas used to cool the air in the machine, this may limit who would take the unit off your hands. We recommend contacting your local non-profit or charities to inquire if it is an acceptable item for donation. If not, then your other options would be to deliver it to an eco or transfer station, or to a local metal scrap yard. These options may be available alongside a fee for the service depending on your local service providers.
