How to Properly Dispose of Appliances and Electronics Prior to Moving

Moving can be tedious that sometimes, it would make you wish to leave all of your stuff behind if only your new place has everything that you could possibly need. However, if you really need to leave some stuff behind, then you should know the proper way to dispose of them, especially the ones that you will no longer need or the ones you can easily part with. It is not right to just leave them behind without proper disposal.

If you are moving to another town, it is easier if you have lesser things to move and it will certainly bring down the moving cost. Know some of the ways that you can do to properly dispose of your appliances or electronics before you move out.

Have a Yard Sale
If you are certain that you are going to move out anytime soon, then you need to put up a yard sale where you can dispose of your unwanted or not-so-needed items and at the same time earn some money. You can either donate the proceeds to charity or use the money to pay the movers. Times are hard and people won't be able to resist the call of a yard sale. You might be surprised to know how much you'll get from the sale and without even troubling yourself on how to dispose of your things.

Donate Your Things

If time forbids you to set up a yard sale, then you can always donate your unwanted items and feed your soul with a good deed. You might not earn some money but your heart will feel light and satisfied.

If you are moving, you can donate the things that you no longer need to places where they accept old appliances and electronics. There are also charitable institutions such as Habitat for Humanity and The Salvation Army that will gladly accept your donation and distribute them to the less fortunate.

Your old clothes that you will no longer wear can definitely warm someone's body when the cold days begin. There are also local Goodwill stores, Red Cross stores, or the likes that you can try and ask if they can accept the things that you want to donate.

Contact Your Community Recycling Center or Pick-up Service

If you are moving and the things you want to leave behind are no longer suitable to be sold in a yard sale or be donated, then it is best to contact your local recycling or pick-up service. There are appliances and electronics that can be recycled into a usable product. Certain appliances contain CFCs (such as air conditioners) that can harm the environment if not properly disposed of. The local pick-up service will gladly get your stuff and recycle them properly and safely.

There are electronics companies that designate a drop off point for their products. You can dispose your old electronics via the drop off points and you can be certain that you will not cause or add harm to the environment.

Know if Your Community Has Fund Raising Drives

You can give your stuff to your community, especially if there is a fund raising drive going on. People who organized the drive know just what to do with your stuff and they know how to properly handle them and turn them into something usable and will not harm the surroundings.

There are lots of options for you to consider in properly disposing of the things that you don't need anymore to make your load lighter when your moving day finally comes. It is easier to keep things in check if you have lesser stuff to manage. You will not only help others but you help your pocket as well.
