Getting new appliances can make your home more energy efficient as well as improve the overall aesthetics. However, you need to get rid of your old appliance before you can install a new one. If you have ever tried to move a refrigerator or other home appliance, you know it’s not an easy task. Even if you did have the strength to haul the unwanted appliance to your car, you may have no idea what to do with it when you get it there. EZ Junk Hauling can save you from all this trouble.Request a Free Quote
What We Do with the Appliances We Pick Up
At EZ Junk Hauling, we always dispose of your old appliances in the most environmentally friendly way possible. If we can find a charitable organization that could use the appliance, that is always our first choice. We only offer the appliance for donation when it’s still in good working order.
When this isn’t possible, we contract with several recycling centers to breakdown your unwanted appliances into recyclable parts to live a new life as another useful item. The workers at these centers separate the non-recyclable parts and hazardous materials from the recyclable materials. Our recycling center contacts tell us that glass, metal, and plastic are the most valuable materials found in old appliances. This process prevents toxic substances and chemicals found in some appliances from leaking into the air, groundwater, and soil.
We are happy to accept these appliances and more:
- Air conditioners
- Ceiling fans
- Trash compactors
- Washing machines
- Water heaters
Don’t worry if you don’t see your specific appliance on this list. There’s a good chance we can still take it and you can use the space in your garage for something other than old appliance storage.
Other Options to Get Rid of Unwanted Appliances
Over the past decade, appliance manufacturers have made a big effort to produce more energy efficient home and commercial products. To encourage people to buy them, some utility companies offer rebates on the new purchase and/or recycling of the old appliances. It’s worth a call to your local utility company in the Oakland area to find out what they offer.
Many municipalities around the country offer curbside pick ups for old appliances a few times a year. Although you pay a fee, you will only need to haul the unwanted appliance to your curb and not into a vehicle to bring to a drop-off site yourself.
Another possibility is to check with local charities such as Habitat for Humanity or the Salvation Army to see if it needs an appliance in working order and would be willing to pick it up. The benefit of doing this is that you can claim a deduction for the fair resale price of the item on your taxes next year.
