How to Dispose of Your Built-In and Over The Range Microwaves
When your old built-in microwave has reached its end of life, the best way to handle the disposal is recycling it! Proper and safe recycling is easy, just use the LargeApplianceRecycling.ca location finder to find the closest recycling location to you, then drop it off.
There is no charge for drop off and we have over 200 locations across BC so there should be one that’s close to you.
Here is some extra information about built-in and over the range microwave recycling you might find useful:
- We accept microwaves that are built-in with or without hood vent combinations. Microwaves must have been permanently installed, small, counter top microwaves are not part of the large appliance recycling program. There are many other categories of large appliances that are accepted, for a full list go to LargeApplianceRecycling.ca/products
- Make sure your appliance is empty and then it's ready for drop off.
- When you drop off your appliance it will be sent to a processor for recycling.
- Drop off is free, just find the recycling location closest to you by using the location finder.
