How do I get rid of my old washer and dryer?

When looking to arrange removal of your washer or dryer, fortunately there are a few options! Whether you’re looking for a DIY washer dryer removal solution or looking for assistance to remove your old appliances Junk 4 Good can help! Here are some great options to dispose of your old washer and dryer.

Washer and Dryer Donation

You may wonder, “where can I donate my used washer and dryer?” Donating appliances can unfortunately be a tricky one. Most non-profits or charities typically steer clear of accepting old appliances as donations. However, depending on your location, you may just luck out and find a local organization who may be able to help. We recommend searching Google for organizations such as thrift stores, the Salvation Army, or the Habitat for Humanity Restore, who may be accepting appliances that are in good condition.

Facebook Marketplace or Kijiji

Listing your old washer and dryer on an online marketplace can be a great way to get rid of them quickly. However, having a stranger come to your home to remove your old household appliance can be an intrusive process.

If you do go this route, it is always best to bring the washer or dryer out of your house so the “buyer” can pick them up without having to enter your home. Be sure to check your local police for their recommended safe transaction procedures.

Landfill or Transfer Station

Old washing machine disposal can be fairly easy if you have the ability to transport the appliances yourself. Once you remove the washer and dryer from your house and load them into your truck or trailer, you can deliver these items to your local eco-station or city landfill. These locations often have recycling programs where the appliances will typically be transferred to a scrap metal recycling yard where the metal will be re-used to become other products.

What is the best thing to do with my old washer and dryer?

The absolute best thing to do with your old washer and dryer (if they aren’t able to be re-used) is to recycle them. A common washing machine can be made up of nearly 65% steel! When taking old appliances to a steel recycling centre, they are considered to be “white metals”. This means they are not rated as a high quality steel, but they can still easily be recycled.

Depending on the appliance recycler, these items will often be shredded, cutting the appliance into small pieces. Once shredded, the metal will be separated with a magnet and any non-metal pieces (plastic, etc.) will be removed. Recycling appliances is such a frequent activity that they can account for nearly 10% of all recycled metal.
