How to Dispose of Old Appliances

Need to haul away an old appliance? See your options here.

Getting a new household appliance can be an exciting time, whether it’s a washer, refrigerator, range, or dishwasher! The question is, what do you do with your current appliance? Below you’ll find out how to dispose of old appliances and where to go from there.

Appliance Retailers & Manufacturers

When you dispose of old appliances, you have several options. One of them is to switch it out directly with the new one from your appliance retailer or manufacturer. Many retailers and manufacturers offer appliance haul-away services along with a new installation, which saves you much time and headache. When the company takes it away, you can be sure they are disposing of it safely. If this approach appeals to you, ask Landers Appliance what they can do for you!


Another option is to donate your appliance to charities that accept gently-used or older appliances. If your refrigerator is running well but isn’t the best kind for your family, it can be a great gift to someone who needs it. A charity that accepts appliances can either sell it to raise money to give it to someone directly.

Utility Companies

Moreover, if you are looking to save energy in your home and in the community, you can participate in a recycling program offered by your utility company or a nearby one. Many utility companies offer appliance recycling programs to encourage people to save energy. The EPA’s Responsible Appliance Disposal Partners group is a good resource for finding a company.

Recycling Programs

If not your utility company, your local, regional, or state recycling program could also assist. With online research, you can find one near you and details about drop-off locations, fees, and more.

Appliance Removal Services

Last but not least, your local appliance removal service can also help. This could also be your local junk removal company, which may specialize in sorting items for proper recycling. If you want to take a trip to the dump, be sure to call in advance to see if they dispose of old appliances.

Next Steps

With a safe plan for your appliance’s disposal in place, you can launch your search for a new stove, fridge, washing machine, etc. Landers Appliance is both an appliance repair company and appliance retailer, dedicated to making your buying and installation as hassle-free as possible.
