Follow these simple suggestions for getting rid of your broken treadmill (responsibly) in NYC.
Living in NYC and realizing that you’re suddenly stuck with a broken treadmill can make your stomach sink. In such a crowded city, with no storage space, no truck, and a few flights of stairs, how on earth are you supposed to get rid of this old hunk of junk?
You could sell or donate the broken treadmill… but, it’s broken. So much for that idea.
This leads you to begin fantasizing about just tossing your treadmill out the window, or at least sneaking out in the dark of night to dump it somewhere.
Instead of leaving your old, broken treadmill on the street or behind a dumpster, you can just as easily recycle it. This keeps it out of the landfill and away from anywhere that would make it an eyesore for the neighborhood.

Why You Should Recycle Your Broken Treadmill
Treadmills and other exercise equipment end up in a landfill where they pollute the air, water, and land when they get thrown out with the garbage in NYC.
Valuable materials like plastic and steel are able to be recovered and reused in the production of new items when you recycle a broken treadmill and other exercise equipment. Our economy is boosted by millions of dollars every year when items such as a treadmill are recycled instead of thrown away.
In addition to saving money by reusing these raw materials instead of mining and fabricating new ones, recycling items like exercise equipment means that jobs in the green energy industry in NYC can be kept and new ones can be created.
Who Offers NYC Treadmill Removal and Recycling?
You can have your broken treadmill picked up with a metal recycling collection from the NYC trash pick up. You will need to make arrangements for a special collection by scheduling an appointment on their website.
Because of high demand for bulk recycling pickup services, it can take a few weeks before your broken treadmill can be picked up.
You might be able to find a recycling collection event in your neighborhood. These are held around town on a fairly regular basis, but you will have to be able to get your broken treadmill to the event to have it recycled. In a city of pedestrians like NYC, that can be tough.
To find a recycling event near you, keep up with local blogs, community bulletin boards, and newspapers for event schedule announcements.
