How to Dispose of Large Appliances

What to Do With Old Appliances

Getting rid of appliances can be a little overwhelming. After all, refrigerators and stoves aren’t exactly the easiest items to pick up and move. Not to mention the fact that you can’t just dump them anywhere. The good news is that there are plenty of convenient options for disposing of old appliances you no longer need.

How to Get Rid of Appliances

Donate Your Appliances

If you’re looking to upgrade to stainless steel and your old appliances show no signs of having any major issues, consider donating them to the following organizations:

  • Salvation Army: Offers both drop-off and pickup options for small and large appliances.
  • Habitat for Humanity ReStores: Accept large donations of new or gently used appliances.
  • Charities and Shelters: Local charities and shelters are always looking for useable appliances. Just make sure to call first.

Recycle Your Appliances

It’s important to assess the condition of your appliances before making a donation. If they’re old, making loud and unusual noises or you find yourself having to fix them every few months, it may be time to part ways instead. Local retailers will sometimes recycle your old appliance upon purchase of a new one. Or, you can use Earth911’s recycling database to locate recycling facilities near you.

Rent a Dumpster

Unless otherwise stated, we can accept most appliances that don’t contain refrigerant. Please keep in mind that additional fees may apply for the disposal of certain appliances. Before renting a dumpster, give us a call at 888-905-2924 and ask what appliances we can take in your area.

Hire a Junk Removal Service

A junk hauling service will do all the heavy lifting for you, though costs will vary depending on where you live and how much time it takes to load your items.

Worked out really good and delivery and pickup was really excellent!

I was very pleased with your service. Both of your drivers were courteous and spotted the dumpster down a narrow driveway. Both pickup and delivery were on time. I was very pleased.

We had an awesome experience with Roll Off Dumpsters from beginning to end! The customer service I received when I first called to place the order and then when I called to have the dumpster picked up was exceptional. The dumpster was delivered in a very timely manner and there was absolutely no damage done to our driveway. Pricing was super and I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family. Many thanks!
