Getting rid of old appliances isn't always the easiest task for homeowners, but there are smart ways to manage it.
Every homeowner and even many renters face the dilemma of getting rid of old appliances. For most of us, the thought of moving and hauling that large unit is daunting.
And, even if we get it out of the house or apartment, then what? Old appliance removal is a challenge. But it can be made easier.
Getting rid of old appliances is one of those tasks that no one really relishes. For many of us it is a chore that is either thrust upon us unexpectedly - like when the washing machine quits - or by choice, as when we upgrade appliances.
Getting rid of old appliances can be a huge chore. And your kitchen stove or oven can be some of the worst to deal with. But if you're upgrading to new appliances, what do you do with the old ones?
