Ever wonder where to take large appliances when you want to dispose or recycle them? It can be a stressful process, but there are many options out there. Here’s how to get rid of your appliances in the Miami area.
Recycle Your Appliances
One way to get rid of large appliances like your refrigerator or washing machine, is to recycle them. It is friendly to the environment, and you can be sure that the hazardous components are handled properly. Some of the best places in the Miami area are:
- Miami-Dade County Trash and Recycling Center – Norwood
- Miami-Dade County Trash and Recycling Center – Sunset Kendall
- Miami-Dade County Trash and Recycling Center – West Little River

Drop Them Off When a Scrap Metal Dealer
Another way to get rid of large appliances is to dispose of them. But you must dispose of them properly. There are federal and state laws which concern the disposal of refrigerators. One way you can dispose of them is by contacting a scrap-metal dealer. They will accept some appliances for drop off or they will sometimes pick up the appliances at your home for a small fee. You can look in your electronic phone book under “scrap metal” or “metal recycling”.
Call a Junk Hauler
