From remodels to wear and tear, we’ve all had an oven, refrigerator, or washing machine that needed to be disposed of. It can be easy to just shove an old appliance in the garage and get to it later. Let’s be honest, “later” turns into months and no one likes an eye sore that takes up space. Don’t fret – thankfully there are a few key ways to safely dispose of old appliances.
Disposing of Your Old Appliances Safely
In Texas, and around the country, there are a number of safety rules you need to be aware of before just tossing your old appliance out the door all willy-nilly. Be sure to put safety first when you’re taking on the whole “out with the old, in with the new” approach to your appliance upgrades.
- Sell It
If your appliance is gently used or in working condition, it can be easy to post an online ad and get your unwanted appliance out of your hair within a day or two. We recommend using one of the many resale sites (Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, etc.), or just have a good ol’ fashioned garage sale.
- Donate It
There are plenty of organizations (non-profits, thrift stores, start-ups) that are in dire need of appliances – and the best part is most of them will pick it up for free! Consider calling around to see if you can give that old washing machine new purpose.
