How can I recycle household appliances?
Fortunately, many household appliances can be recycled and reused for other purposes. Large appliances such as ovens, washing and drying machines, and refrigerators are typically broken down and used as scrap metal. The metal is then separated, recycled, and melted down for re-use in manufacturing purposes. Your local household recycling programs may not have the required equipment to handle the pickup of large items, so you will need to either transport them to a transfer station or recycling centre on your own.
Small household appliances such as cooking pans, microwaves, or toasters are made with recyclable metals and materials and can be recycled in your local blue bins for curb pickup. However, depending on your location and region, rules may vary. You may need to take them to a recycling facility yourself if you are recycling several small household appliances at the same time.
Why should I recycle old household appliances?
The production of new metals can be detrimental to the environment and is a very costly process. Because of this, any items that contain metal should be recycled. Small household appliances such as toasters and microwaves contain toxic materials that decompose when sitting in a landfill, releasing gases and a variety of toxins into the air we breathe and that contaminates our soil and water supply. While laws surrounding recycling varies depending on your location, it is always important to recycle old household appliances when you can.
At Junk It, we take the hassle out of recycling your old household appliances, whether they be small or large. We will help you get rid of any unwanted appliances by picking them up and work in partnership with local recycling facilities to ensure that they get recycled and disposed of responsibly.
How do I dispose of household appliances?
There are a variety of ways to dispose of your old or unwanted appliances. Consider the condition of the item before you simply throw it out. If it’s still working, many local charities will accept household appliances of any size, which are allocated to people who may not be able to afford brand new items. This will ensure your appliance is being used for the entire duration of its lifetime.
Another option for household appliance disposal is to take them to local transfer stations or to a facility that recycles scrap metals. This option is a lot more labour intensive and timely, as you will need the proper vehicles and equipment to pack, load, and drop off the items yourself. In this scenario, you can rely on Junk It to load, clean up, and dispose of your appliances safely, without having to lift a finger. We will pick your items up and ensure they end up in the right place, whether they are donated, recycled, or responsibly disposed of.
How do I dispose of old refrigerators?
If you want to dispose of your old or unwanted refrigerator, you will want to get in contact with a local charity first. Many will accept donations of working appliances of any size.
If you want to get rid of a broken refrigerator, you will need to recycle it. The first step in doing so is to research your local recycling facilities to determine where you can drop it off.

How do I dispose of old microwaves?
Microwaves are composed of several materials which include metal, glass, plastic, and various other electronic elements. When left to sit in a landfill, these substances have the potential to harm the environment by releasing toxins into the air and soil, which can contaminate our water supply. Because of this, we strongly recommend to donate or recycle your unwanted microwaves instead of tossing it into the trash.
Donating your microwave, as long as it’s in working condition, is the best way to dispose of it. Many local charities will accept donations of appliances of any size, or you may know someone who can make use of it. If your microwave is broken, its components can be recycled after it has been broken down and separated.
