If you’re getting ready to remodel or upgrade your kitchen, have you thought about how you’ll dispose of your old appliances? Consider recycling- you’ll reduce your carbon foot print and may even get some cash! Whether your appliance is out of commission or you just want the latest model, there are easy options for recycling your old appliance.
If your appliance is no longer working, there are recycling centers that will gladly accept them. These recycling agents know how to safely and properly dispose of your old appliance to help keep scrap metal and other potentially hazardous materials out of land fills, which contaminate of our precious natural resources.
Not interested in lugging around your old appliance? Many centers have curbside and in-home pick up services. Simply schedule an appointment, and it’s off your hands in no time.
If your appliance still in working condition, you have even more choices!
A great place to start is finding a local community organization that may be in need. Some ogranizations, like Habitat for Humanity, may be able to give you a tax deduction slip.
In need of a little extra cash to cover the new appliance? Post your item on Craigs List or eBay. You may find a local willing to pay a decent penny to take it off your hands. If you don’t have the time or capacity to move it yourself, reduce the price a bit and ask for the buyer to pick it up.
If you’ve already purchased your new appliance, and it happens to be an ENERGY STAR complaint machine, then you can take advantage of the current Texas Cash for Appliances rebate. Not only will you receive money back for your new, energy efficient appliance- you can sntach an additional $75 by proving you properly recycled your old appliance.
