Do you have broken or old appliances sitting around your house? If you’ve ever tried moving a fridge, you know it’s a tiring and difficult job. Moreover, lifting heavy objects without the proper know-how can result in serious back injuries. And it can be a challenge to get rid of these products in the most environmentally-friendly way.
That’s why Junk King offers appliance removal services so you can get rid of old equipment before they become the bane of your existence. We’re experts in responsible appliance disposal and we tailor our services to provide our clients with a quick, efficient, and hassle-free experience.
How to Get Rid of Old Appliances?
Appliance removal is as straightforward as it sounds. It involves getting old appliances off your property and finding a new life for them, or at least their parts.
If you’re thinking of going down the DIY route, don’t take the appliance apart. Most appliances, especially those on the larger end, may contain dangerous substances, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or toxic foam insulation. Some older generation appliances also contain poisonous chemical components like mercury. This is why you shouldn’t disassemble the appliance or dispose of them in landfills. Take it to the disposal center as it is.
There are three other ways you can get rid of your junk appliances.
- Sell them. If your appliance is still in working condition, there’s always someone willing to take it off your hands. Consider using online sites like Craigslist to get rid of your old appliances while recouping some of the costs of your investment.
- Donate them. Donating is another great way to find a new home for your appliances. Most second-hand shops and non-profit groups are willing to accept old appliances as long as they’re still functioning. Make sure to get a receipt, you might be able to get a tax deduction.
- Scrap them. Scraping can help you get rid of an old appliance and make some money in the process. Find a local used appliance or scrap metal dealer who’ll dismantle it to recover recyclable materials.
Despite the above options. Getting rid of old appliances is quite the hassle for most home and business owners. If you don’t have a truck, then you’ll have to rent or borrow one to haul the piece of equipment off your property. Also, you’ll have to coordinate with the disposal center to find out when and if you can drop off your particular appliance.
What’s more, all appliances have to be recycled or disposed of in accordance with local and state guidelines. With Junk King, you don’t have to worry about the rule of law or anything else when getting rid of old appliances.

What About Small Appliances?
When people think of appliance disposal, they think of fridges, freezers, air conditioning systems and other large, bulky appliances. After all, it’s easier to get rid of small appliances, right? Well, not necessarily.
You cannot throw your old microwave or coffee grinder in the garbage. Small appliances are often made up of metal, plastic, glass, and electronic components, which can be detrimental to the environment when left to sit in a landfill. For instance, they can release toxic gases into the air plus harmful substances that can contaminate the soil and water supply. As such, smaller appliances have to be disposed of appropriately.
If your appliances are in good working condition, consider donating them to nonprofit organizations, where they can find a second home. But if they’re broken down, it’s crucial that they end up in a recycling plant. Some localities mandate that small appliances be recycled. But even in the absence of such laws, you can rely on Junk King to dispose of small appliances in an environment-friendly manner.
