How to dispose of used washers and dryers in the Greater Cleveland area

Americans do an awful lot of laundry. As a result, washer and dryer machines go through a lot of wear and tear. At some point, they will wear out and need to be replaced. If you are faced with the decision about what to do when a washer or dryer needs to be removed, this guide is for you. Here are your options:

Retailer pick up and removal: Many retailers offer to haul away an old washer or dryer if you purchase a replacement from them. The price is generally around $40. However, this service is only offered if you purchase a new washer or dyer machine from them.

Sell the old washer or dryer: Utilizing websites such as Facebook marketplace, OfferUp, or Craigslist are good ways to try to get some money for old washer or dryers. Most of the time buyers will want a functional machine. However, some buyers may be interested in purchasing a broken machine for the scrap value.

Donate the item to a local charity: If you are okay with not getting money for your old washer or dryer, donating the machine is an excellent option. Charities such as Goodwill or Habitat for Humanity may even be willing to pick up the washer or dryer for no fee if the machine is in working condition.
