5. Sell to Scrap Metal Recyclers
Depending on where you live in the United States selling your appliances to a scrap metal recycler is another great option. But this option won’t be as easy as some of the others listed.
Not only do you need to transport the item you need to take it apart as they only will accept certain parts for each appliance. They tend to pay per pound but don’t accept just anything.
Make sure to contact several scrap metal recyclers if possible as they can pay different amounts. Plus, some of these facilities won’t accept scrap metal so make sure to do your homework before loading up your appliances and heading over.
6. Recycle For a Reward
18 of the 50 states allow you sell your appliances and make money via recycling. While the amount isn’t much, usually ranging from $25-$100 this is an option that is good for the environment and your wallet.
7. Use 1-800-GOT-JUNK
While I can’t say I’ve used 1-800-GOT-JUNK it’s another great option with minimal stress to get rid of unwanted appliances. You can schedule a no-obligation appointment online or contact them via phone.
They will come to your home and give you an estimate based on everything they will remove. Their prices are based on the total volume of how much your “junk” is taking in the truck. They will help you move the item, regardless of where it is in your home, and load into their truck.
They donate or recycle as much as possible and will charge you a one-time fee. If there isn’t a franchise close to you there might be a local establishment similar to 1-800-GOT-JUNK to help you as well.
8. Have Local Stores Pickup Your Appliances
If you don’t have a vehicle or don’t want to rent one, you can also choose to have a local store pickup your appliance. In the past, they used to actually pay you but this isn’t the case anymore.
9. Donate Large Appliances
If you want to simply get rid of your appliances and aren’t worried about the cash, you can also choose to donate them as well. Not only will this good deed help others in need it can be used as a tax write off in the future.
Local stores and charities can sometimes pickup as well. If you have other things you’d like to donate you can also add as well.
