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.

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.
