You made your new years resolution. You bought the treadmill, set it up, and got it ready to use. Now it’s 20 years later. You didn’t keep your resolution. But you’ve renewed it now, only to find your treadmill doesn’t work, needs upgrading, or just don’t look safe to run on. What do you do with it now? Most municipalities won’t haul away old treadmills. You could just leave it where it is until you move and have to deal with it, but you need the space for the new treadmill right now. How do you get rid of this bulky, difficult to move piece of equipment? Thankfully, you have 5 options to choose from for treadmill removal.
Manufacturer Take Back
If you’re purchasing a new treadmill, the company you’re purchasing it from may offer a removal service. They’ll take away the old one when they drop off the new one. Though it’s not offered by all companies, it’s worth asking. You could have your treadmill removed for free or a nominal fee.
If your treadmill still works, consider donating it to a local charity or community or senior center. Contact Goodwill, Salvation Army, or Habitat for Humanity. There’s a chance they might not have the room for it at the moment, but if they do, they’ll gladly find a good home for it. They might be able to pick it up from your location as well, though this means you could potentially have to hold on to it for a couple of weeks (or months) to fit into their pick up schedule.
This treadmill removal option takes a little more effort than the rest, but you could end up with a little extra cash for your efforts. Try listing it on Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp, or Craiglist. Specify buyer must arrange for pick up. Or, if you have a capable vehicle, include delivery for an extra fee.
List It for Free
With treadmill removal, sometimes the best luck comes with listing it for free. You can list items for free on Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist. You can also try dragging it to the end of your driveway and taping a piece of paper to it with the word “FREE”. If your street is busy enough, it will probably disappear within a matter of hours.

For hands off treadmill removal service, call a local junk removal company, like Moving U & Junk U. You won’t need to do any kind of heavy lifting.
