How should I dispose of the old/junk appliances?

There are many ways to get rid of old appliances, depending on the condition of the item.

  • Donate it to charity.

If it still works, try donating it to a local charity. They may even be able to pick it up for you. Many local charities accept appliances of all sizes, and these items often go to people who may not be able to afford brand new items.

  • Selling it.

If your item is in good working condition, you could try to sell it online. Most people will be willing to pick up items directly from your home, so you don’t have to worry about transporting it.

  • Recycle it.

If your items don’t work anymore, you can also sell your appliances at local transfer stations or scrap metal recyclers.

You’ll need a truck and will have to load up your items and drop them off yourself. This method typically takes a lot of time.

Most of the time old appliances take up space in your basement, or you’re trying to clean up after an eviction. Let our appliance recycling experts in Torrance take care of your old appliances.

Can you throw a microwave in the garbage?

Microwaves are made up of metal, plastic, glass, and electronic components. These substances have the potential to be harmful to the environment if they are left to sit in a landfill.

Recycling or donating your microwave can avoid toxic-waste and you may also help other people to reuse your junked appliances.

If your microwave is in good working condition, donating it is always the best option. You might know someone else who can use it, or you can donate it to a local charity. If your microwave no longer works, it can be broken down into its components and recycled.

Why is small appliance recycling important?

Any products containing metal should be recycled, and our appliance recycling experts in Torrance can help. Production of new metals can be costly and damaging to humans and the environment. Recycling them reduces the environmental impact.

Many smaller appliances also contain substances that can decompose, releasing gasses into the air and other toxins that can contaminate the soil and water supply.

Some communities mandate that some small appliances must be recycled. But even if there isn’t a law in place to prevent these items from ending up in landfills, it’s always important to recycle these items where possible before it will cause a huge damage to us and to our surroundings.

What old appliances can be recycled?

Most household appliances like microwaves, ovens, and refrigerators can be removed and recycled by our Torrance team, including:

Larger appliances are often broken down and used as scrap metal. The metal is then recycled by being separated, melted down, and reused in manufacturing. Smaller appliances often contain recyclable materials and can  be recycled in local blue bins. However, the rules vary depending on location.
