What is Appliance Recycling?
Appliance recycling refers to the process of disassembling home or industrial appliances and reprocessing their parts for reuse. Because appliances are made of a combination of metals, plastics, electronics, and other industrial materials, appliance recycling requires a more comprehensive deconstruction in order to recycle or dispose of all of the elements safely and sustainably.
Appliances large and small, from refrigeration units and generators to blenders or toasters, won’t break down naturally in a landfill. Recycling appliances ensures that any harmful or toxic chemicals won’t leach in the ground or evaporate and cause pollution. Appliance recycling covers a pretty broad range of appliances, though for electronics and technology disposal or recycling, like TVs for example, we offer separate e-recycling services.

Why Consider Appliance Removal & Recycling?
Appliance recycling is a safe, simple, and environmentally friendly way to remove your property’s old or broken appliances. Professional waste removal and recycling with TurboHaul guarantees all hazardous materials are kept out of landfills and that all recyclable materials are properly reprocessed. Environmental impact, cost savings, and health and safety considerations are our three top priorities when it comes to appliance recycling.
Recycling appliances prevents greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) from polluting the atmosphere and contributing to climate change. According to the EPA, old or damaged appliances left in landfills can also release used oils and mercury into the environment, things which are harmful to the human nervous system and body as well as to plants and wildlife. Large appliances also clutter landfills — choosing to recycle cuts back on this clutter in addition to preventing pollution from toxic substances.
Got an old appliance still plugged in that’s rarely used? Or maybe you’re on the fence about upgrading to a more energy-efficient model? Recycling older appliances can save you up to $50 each year in energy costs, reducing your home or business’s overall energy footprint.
Avoid the release of used oil, mercury, PCBs, and other harmful chemicals and carcinogens that can cause organ damage and neurological problems by responsibly recycling your appliances.

FAQs About Appliance Disposal & Recycling
We answer some commonly asked questions about appliance removal and recycling.
What’s the best way to dispose of old appliances?
Skip the landfill and recycle your old appliance by hiring an appliance pick-up and disposal service such as TurboHaul. If you’re determined to do it yourself, use this helpful Appliance Recycling Guide.
How do I recycle a refrigerator?
Much like appliance recycling, you can recycle an old refrigerator through waste removal and recycling service providers. You can also contact your local waste management division or department of public works.
Can you put smaller appliances in the trash or recycling bin?
Smaller appliances cannot be recycled or taken out with curbside trash. Glass, metal, and other materials even in small appliances will get crushed in the truck’s compactor, contaminating the surrounding waste and making it unfit for processing.
Can I donate my old appliances that still work?
Yes! If your appliance is still in working condition, you can bring it to a charitable organization or nonprofit. Some places will even pick-up appliances from your location. Note that not all organizations will accept large appliances, or may have requirements based on size and manufacturing year.
What happens to the appliances I recycle?
Whether your old appliance has been picked up or you dropped it off at a commercial recycling facility, it will go through a disassembly process to sort out the reusable materials. Refrigerants, oils, and other chemicals used in the appliance will be disposed of in compliance with the EPA’s regulations.
