Stoves

There’s good news! You can recycle your stove!

You may have tried giving your old stove to a friend or family member, only to realize that no one wants to spend time hauling it, especially if it needs work.

You may have even tried throwing it away.
But by now, you’ve found out that you can’t do that either. 

Heavy trash pickup is only available a few times a year, and the weekly trash pickup service won’t accept large appliances.

Although it can be an inconvenience to move your old, broken, heavy appliances out the door, you could consider requesting a professional to help you remove your stove to bring to Cohen for recycling. 

Once dismantled, your old stove might yield significant monetary value, even if it’s broken. 

Many of the stove’s components are recyclable.

What Stove Components Are Recyclable?

  • Scrap metal burners, exterior/casing, and racks
  • Plastic – temperature knobs, pulls, and other various parts
  • Glass – surface plate

What is the Stove Recycling Process?

  1. The stove is dismantled
  2. The recyclable components are sorted
  3. All hazardous waste is carefully removed
  4. If any parts are salvageable and valuable, the recycler will typically offer you payment
  5. The recyclable materials are used to create new machines

Are Most Large Appliances Recyclable?

Most large appliances like stoves, ovens, refrigerators, and microwave ovens can be properly recycled at facilities like Cohen.

How Does Recycling My Stove Benefit the Environment?
