Appliance Disposal in Henderson NV
Throwing away an old appliance can be more complicated than you might think. Appliances like an old oven or used kegerator are heavy, bulky, and a pain to move around. It is next to impossible for someone to move something large like that all by themselves in Henderson.
You could try to coerce a friend or relative to help you haul your old fridge or washer to the dump, but the chances of that happening are probably pretty slim even if you provide food.

Having your unwanted appliance recycled can be inconvenient and frustrating since the Henderson recycling service doesn’t offer removal or haul-away for appliance recycling.
This means you’ll have to take old appliances to a local recycling drop-off center yourself.
Be careful not to damage any tubing or leak any coolant, because this can actually be incredibly risky and dangerous. You’ll need to hire a professional to drain the coolant and remove any doors from your appliances before going through the work of recycling them.

Appliance Donation in Henderson, NV
You might consider donating your unwanted freezer or oven to charity. As long as your appliances are still in good, working condition, you can likely donate your used appliances like AC units, refrigerators, and dryers to a charity in Henderson that will give it to others.
Most charities in Henderson, like Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity ReStore, will accept your donation of gently used appliances. They sell items like refrigerators in their thrift stores to help fund their work in the community, but you really need to make sure your unwanted appliance works well and looks almost new if you plan to donate it to charity that wants it.
Before donating an unwanted chest freezer or other appliance, remember that charities end up wasting a lot of time and money dealing with items that should never have been donated. You don’t want to haul it all the way to the charity’s donation center where they won’t take it.
Take a look around the charity’s website before trying to donate your appliance. This should give you a good idea of what items they will take and whether they’ll pick up your donations.
If the charity doesn’t pick up donations and your old fridge or washer/dryer set is too difficult to haul to the donation center yourself, call yourself an appliance removal service in Henderson like LoadUp to pick up your used appliances and haul them to be donated.
