Every Appliance Disposal Question You May Have
Appliance Recycling and Removal Solutions
You may be surprised to find that more than just paper and plastic can be recycled in your home. Large kitchen appliances all the way to your cell phone can be recycled. There are plenty of options that may be available before recycling your large appliances or electronic devices, like selling them or donation, but recycling may be a good option if your appliance or device is no longer in working order.
What Can I Recycle?
Many items can be recycled in your home including your refrigerator, television, computer, cell phone, stove, microwave, washer, and dryer, and mattresses and box springs.
However, you may not want to jump straight to recycling. Perhaps your appliance or electronic is still in good working order, and you have just upgraded, and donation is a better option for you right now. In that case schedule a donation pick-up with Junk Smiths. Junk Smiths serves the Huntington Beach area and can pick up all of your items for donation, whether large or small. Junk Smiths is equipped with a team, truck, and experience to get the job done. They take the heavy lifting out of donation pick-up.
The team at Junk Smiths will make sure that all of your appliances and electronics you are donating arrive at the charity of your choice in Huntington Beach. Junk Smiths will also make sure to email you a tax write-off form saving you the hassle and saving you money at the end of the year.
Why Recycling Large Appliances?
Recycling large appliances carries some large benefits:
- Steel makes up about 75% of appliances, and steel is the most recycled material in the U.S.
- Refrigerators and air conditioners both use a chemical commonly referred to as CFC’s that are a leading contributor to the depletion of the ozone. By dumping a fridge or other unit with CFC’s improperly these chemicals are released into the environment. Recycling processes these chemicals safely.
- Some companies may even offer you a credit for recycling your old appliance.
Why Recycle Cell phones, computers, and TVs?
Electronics can produce harmful chemicals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium, all of which needs to be disposed of properly. Over five states have laws stating that electronics have to be disposed of properly.
How Can I Recycle?
If your small electronics or cell phones are still in working order, you can always opt to sell them. Just be sure to remove your personal information, of course. Otherwise, there are many drop-off locations for old electronics available in Huntington Beach.
If you have large TVs, computers, and appliances that you need to be removed, then Junk Smiths will be happy to pick up items and dispose of them for you. You can rest assured that Junk Smiths will take your items to the proper locations for disposal. Hence, saving you the trip and the hassle.
Junk Smiths is happy to pick up your beds and mattresses as they need to be disposed of properly by a recycling service. Mattresses are broken down, and the frame is typically reused for parts and pieces.
Getting Rid Of Your Old, Unwanted Appliances.
We’ve all been there. You open the fridge to make dinner, only to find that it’s warm in there. You’ve had it for 15 years, but it’s time to get a new one and get rid of old appliances. You hop online and quickly find a brand-new, stainless steel fridge with a great warranty – and it’s on sale! Everything is going smoothly until it hits you – what are you going to do with your old fridge?
While some appliance retailers offer old appliance removal for a small additional fee, many have no such service. A lot of these companies rely on separate local delivery companies that are only interested in dropping off the new products and moving on to the next delivery.
You can’t just drag that fridge to the curb, either. Not only will your neighbors be unhappy, but your town or city won’t pick it up for you. In fact, they may even slap you with a fine!
