First, ask about trade in options for older appliances when purchasing new ones.

If your appliance is in good working condition, consider donating it Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore or another donation center. Certain restrictions may apply for appliance and furniture donations.

Best Buy has an appliance and electronics take back program. You can recycle up to three items per household per day. Check individual stores for details on their haul away and trade in options.

Nearby Best Buy locations:

Janesville – 608-758-2156

If your appliance is not in working condition and not accepted at a donation drop off site check with your municipal waste hauler to see if your Town, City, or Village has scheduled bulk pick up days. There may be a fee depending on your waste hauler and the item(s) you wish to dispose of.
