You’ve got a new refrigerator – that’s great! You’ll now be able to elevate your entire kitchen game, but before you can start whipping up new creations, you have to figure out what to do with your old appliance. Items like refrigerators, ranges, and dishwashers are heavy. Hauling them away is not something you can, nor should, do alone.
Below we’ll walk through some options for clearing out your old appliances as you make way for the new in your kitchen, laundry room or wherever else you have an appliance upgrade in your home.
What to Know About Appliance Removal and Disposal
First things first, don’t disassemble the appliance. Older appliances in particular can contain hazardous materials such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) or other toxic chemicals. Even new appliances are not meant to be tampered with.
Second, you could attempt to give it a new home. If the appliance is still in working condition or even if it needs minor repairs, you could donate it or potentially sell it and give it a new life.
