Most folks have made the occasional trek to the local landfill, but sometimes you have really big junk to haul. When it comes to furniture and appliances, what do you do?
What do you do with that old appliance that doesn't work, can't be donated, and is too big to set out on the curb for the weekly garbage pick-up? Or what about the old furniture that no one wanted when you bought your new set? You could try selling it online, but it could take a while. Donating it might be a good idea, but you have to get it out of the garage and try to transport it.
Sometimes, the best option is to simply to remove and dispose of large junk items like appliances and furniture.
Your Big Junk Hauling Options
If you've made the decision to get rid of your old, unworking appliance or unwanted furniture, what are your options?
In most situations, you have three options:
- You can use the family SUV or truck to haul your appliances or furniture to the local landfill. This is not an option for everyone since a suitable vehicle isn't always available. And it is hard and even dangerous work.
- Your second option is to hire someone else to come and haul the items off for you. This is a common approach and it can make your life easier, but it costs more and the landfills probably don't need more old dryers or sofas.
- A better approach would be to arrange for your old belongings to be picked up and recycled.
Going this route is an opportunity to help keep the earth clean by recycling the equipment. This option becomes all the more critical when you consider that many counties and municipalities have enacted Zero Waste initiatives and Landfill Diversion goals designed to ramp up recycling efforts and reduce overall waste and landfill use.
This is also a great option on other levels, as well. Appliance removal and furniture disposal can be quite a task: not only do you need to break down and carry those heavy items out the door, but you then need to figure out what to do with them. Many cities don’t allow specific furniture items on the curb, and for city pick up you need to rely on their tight schedule. (Not to mention you need to do all the heavy lifting!)
Appliance recycling often makes more sense than trying to donate, since the equipment is often inefficient and close to breaking down if it hasn’t already. Besides, moving and lifting machines like washers or dryers take a lot of hard work and requires a vehicle that can handle the load safely.
Large appliances like ovens can be responsibly disposed of through professional recycling. Items such stoves, oven and microwave ovens can be broken down into metals and other materials. Scrap metal gets separated from plastic and hazardous electronic waste. Even if your local garbage collection accepts appliances like dishwashers and trash compactors as bulk items, these are large and hazardous machines that should not go to landfill.
Hiring a professional firm for big junk removal for appliances makes great sense because there’s simply no easy way to get rid of them yourself.
