If you have been a homeowner for a while, there’s a pretty good chance you have needed to repair or replace a major appliance. Researchers estimate that 20% of homeowners will need to replace a major appliance or undergo a major appliance repair this year. You may be wondering if you will need to repair or replace a kitchen appliance this year.
Luckily, there are tips for replacing appliances and keeping your family members safe and sound. There are also tips for getting rid of appliances that are no longer working for you. Here are some tips for appliance repair or replacement and kitchen safety.
Why You Have to Get Rid of Appliances Carefully
In the past, homeowners didn’t worry overly much about getting rid of appliances. They simply threw them in a trash bag and put them out for the garbage, or they hauled them to the junkyard themselves. Over the last 50 years, Americans have increasingly worried about the impact they are having on the environment when they dispose of large items such as major appliances.
All major household appliances emit greenhouse gases. Scientists believe that greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, are responsible in part for climate change. The earth has been gradually warming each year, and this warming may have serious consequences in the future. Some parts of the country are undergoing record drought, while others are experiencing record heat and record rainfall. If you worry about climate change, you need to consider responsible recycling.
Another reason to consider responsible recycling is the chemicals inside major appliances. There’s a good reason why homeowners need to be environmentally cautious when they are disposing of large appliances. This is especially true of items like microwaves and refrigerators. In the case of microwaves, they are considered e-waste (or electronic waste) and can’t be thrown out in the garbage. The fridge has certain hazardous chemicals, such as Freon, which if released into the atmosphere could cause problems. Appliances also have heavy metals and other components that are difficult to recycle without help.
How Do I Recycle Responsibly?
Whether you are replacing one major appliance or an entire kitchen full of appliances, there are ways you can recycle those old appliances and make room for lovely new appliances in your kitchen. Here are some tips for recycling responsibly.
First, you need to know that not all appliances can be recycled. Here is a brief list of major appliances you can recycle:
While this is a general list of appliances you can recycle, if you are planning to recycle these yourself by taking them to the dump, you need to call ahead and ask what items they take, or check out their website.
If you hate the thoughts of dragging your major appliances to the dump, you may want to consider giving your appliances away. There are several charities, such as Goodwill, that take your old appliances if they are still working. Not only can you practice responsible recycling, but you can also take a tax write off on the donated cost of the appliance. Best of all, you’ll know that your appliances are going to people who need them badly.
What if you don’t have time to recycle? There are junk removal companies, such as Junk King Cincinnati, who will come into your home, remove the large appliance, and recycle it for you. Depending on the appliance, you may be able to get these appliances recycled with little out of pocket expense. Consumers rate Junk King Cincinnati highly because of their efficiency, and their emphasis on green recycling.
