Generally, small home appliances do not have that long useful life. It must be the time to change or replace an appliance. However, you can not just throw it away simply into the bin as those appliances are made with metal and chemical components. Accordingly, those appliances must be disposed of or recycled properly so that the environmental will not be harmed. First of all to make things properly on disposal and recycle, you can take a look at your location because there may have several options for disposal and recycling of broken appliances. Here is the guideline for you as follows:
* For those used electronic appliances, you can take them to a local retailer or manufacturer that they are in participation with the Environmental Protection Agency’s eCycling Plug-In program such as Best Buy and Staples.
* Call on to local municipality for asking if your area has participation in curbside appliance pickups. Generally, many areas are mostly allowing homeowners to take appliances like microwaves and refrigerators away at the roadside once or twice a month for picking up and disposal by the date and time which depend on your location.
* As many people are searching around for broken appliance parts, you can post an advertisement online at the useful website such as Craigslist or FreeCycle, Moreover, you can also stick up posters on the boards in your town but you need to make sure that the advertisement is noted the appliance’s condition and specified that it is broken.
* Asking a theater group or art organization in your community if they want the broken appliance for making a project or using as stage props. If they want those broken appliances, let’s donate them.
* Some broken small appliances can be valuable such as stoves which are made of mostly steel. Let’s consult your city’s salvage yards and ask if any salvage companies accept your broken appliances.
