Why Recycle Old Appliances?
Old appliances, especially ones that are ten years or older, can be much more inefficient and costly to run than newer ones. Continued use of these old appliances contributes to excess energy use, which leads to more emissions of greenhouse gases and higher energy bills. When you recycle an appliance, the parts will either be disposed of properly or recycled.
What Kind of Appliances Can Be Recycled?
We take most major appliances; From washers and dryers to old water heaters. We also pick-up refrigerators and freezers, as well as any other household appliance that your normal trash provider will not haul away from the curb. Many appliances contain dangerous chemicals that our crews are equipped to safely remove and dispose of.
How to Prepare For Appliance Pick-Up
Simply disconnect your appliance from utilities like water or electricity and make sure there is a clear path to and around the object. Putting it in the garage or close to the door makes it easier for us. If you are able to move your appliance to the curb safely, we offer a discount for curbside pick-up.
Where Do Old Appliances Get Taken?
Appliances that we pick up are passed along to licensed facilities that recover harmful chemicals and recycle metal and parts.

What to Look For In a New Appliance
When you are ready to buy a new appliance, here are some tips for making your home more energy efficient and eco-friendly:
- Look for appliances with the “Energy Star” label. Established in 1992 by the EPA, Energy Star is a program that helps consumers find the most energy efficient options for appliances.The US Government supports companies who sell products with the Energy Star label because they have been rated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants caused by inefficient energy use.
- Pick the right size appliance for your home. A small refrigerator packed full of food is just as inefficient as a large refrigerator with wasted space. When it comes to air conditioning and heating a unit that is too large will waste energy. Make sure your appliances are the right size for your home and needs.
- Types of appliances: Front-loading washers are more efficient than top-loaders. A refrigerator with the freezer on the side versus on top is more efficient.
