If your house is like most American homes, then chances are your refrigerator is near the top of your ‘most important appliance’ list. Think of how many times a day you open & close the fridge doors, grab a glass of water or use the ice dispenser. All that seemingly simple, daily wear and tear can really add up.
At some point, you may find yourself having to replace that all important appliance, or maybe just a nice upgrade from your current fridge.
So what do you do with your old refrigerator?
Here are a few ideas when you are ready to dispose of your old refrigerator:
Donate Your Old Refrigerator
Is your fridge still working just fine but you just got a really awesome upgrade? Consider donating your appliance to a friend, neighbor, thrift store or local charity in need. You’ll feel great giving back and you’ll be donating something that can literally be life-changing for a family who is going without.
Ask Your Appliance Technician
Upon having your new refrigerator delivered, ask your appliance technician about removal of the old refrigerator. Sometimes an appliance repairman can use parts or pieces on refurbished appliances. At the very least, they will know all the standards and procedures for disposing of your old fridge properly.
Call/Haul to Your Local Dump
It may be possible that your local trash collector will pick up your old fridge, but not without an extra fee. If you have a truck or other large vehicle, you may be able to haul away that fridge yourself, but be mindful and make sure you have enough lifting power to move it safely. Again, call the dump ahead of time as some will charge a fee for dumping appliances or may require extra care for the freezer coolant.
If you are having refrigerator problems, it’s good to get a diagnosis from an appliance repair technician, you may save yourself time and $$$.
