Get a little extra cash when you get rid of a old fridge
Old refrigerators consume more energy than new, energy-efficient models. When it’s time to swap yours out for a new one, there are ways to make money for your old fridge. Here’s more about how to make a little cash during your fridge removal.
Make Money with Your Fridge Removal
If your old fridge is still functioning, there might be someone out there who can use it. This is especially true for low-income households, college students, and others who don’t wish to pay full price for a new one. Try your luck online (Facebook Marketplace , Craigslist etc) or by organizing a yard sale and advertising that there’s a refrigerator for sale. This is a great way to get rid of any number of other items you have lying around. Remember: one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
Sell it For Scrap Metal
Refrigerators contain a number of valuable metals that can be removed and reused to make new items. Do a little research online to find a company (or person) offering cash for old appliances. Having your old fridge (and other appliances, for that matter) broken down for parts does planet Earth a favor, too, by reducing landfill waste.
While this isn’t a way to make money, old appliances use more electricity than newer versions, so you’ll save money by making the switch! Recycling is a great alternative if you can’t find a buyer. As with selling for scrap metal, recycling your fridge means you’re avoiding adding to a landfill. This, in turn, prevents toxic chemicals from leaking into the soil and polluting the groundwater.
