City Trash Collector
If you have a city trash service, look up the website to see what services they provide and how to get rid of appliances this way. Some will pick up any appliances that you leave at the curb, although they may charge you an extra fee on your monthly bill. Other cities have specific bulky trash days where they invite you to cart out your appliances for free pickup.

Rent a Dumpster
Dumpster rental services will deliver a temporary dumpster for your old appliances and other trash. Consider this choice if getting rid of your appliance is part of a bigger remodeling project and you’ll have a lot of other construction debris to get rid of as well. Many dumpster services will accept appliances, but it’s important to look up the details on the types of appliances they take and what sizes are allowed.
