How to Get Rid of Used Kitchen Appliances

If you're replacing any of your kitchen appliances, chances are it's because you are renovating an old kitchen or simple replacing the outdated ones. Whichever the case, you will probably be asking "What do I do with old kitchen appliances?"

As it turns out, you do have some environmentally friendly options for disposing of your used kitchen appliances, and you may even make some money while at it. But what you do with them depends on their condition:

1. When the Appliance is in Good Condition:

So, a new model of your refrigerator just came up, but the one in your kitchen is hardly a year old? No problem: you can still add class to your kitchen by selling off the not-so-old appliance and making room for the new one. It might even raise quite a substantial amount to help you breeze through the purchase of the more expensive, latest edition.

If you can't find someone to sell it off to, you shouldn't worry. It could be your time to adopt a philanthropic attitude, and help your neighbors, or anybody else in need of a fridge. Not everyone has the cash to spend on a sparkling new item for their kitchen. Go ahead and donate it, either personally, or through a reputable organization.

2. When the Appliance is in Used condition

Your oven range or dishwasher has served you for quite some time but hasn't reached its end of life. Well, you can't just push it out and dump it somewhere in your backyard. You could still get a good deal on it if you decide to sell it off to your friends, or appliance re-sellers.

However, you shouldn't expect too much from it because of its condition. It may attract a considerably lower price than you would have liked, but, hey, it's much better than throwing it out, or dumping it in a landfill.

But if you're feeling a little altruistic, and you haven't found any buyer for the old gas range, you can donate it to a charitable organization, such as Goodwill, Habitat ReStore, or any other in your town, and this could get you a tax deduction.

3. When the Appliance is in Poor condition

As for the oven ranges or freezers that are no longer working, don't be in a rush to take them apart in the hope of selling parts. While you may make some money that way, the unwanted parts will stay in your possession with no place (or need) to store them.

So, what do you do with an old unusable kitchen appliance?

  • Recycle It: Research around for recycling services because you don't any of your old kitchen appliances to end in a landfill. Recyclers will dismantle the appliance and distribute the valuable plastics and metals to be reused in new products.
  • Hire a junk removal service: This is the best option to get that old ceiling fan or water heater off your hands conveniently. They'll cart the pieces safely and professionally away, and will decide whether to recycle them, or dispose of them appropriately.
