Elliptical Removal: 4 Options for Donating or Recycling

elliptical removal

Not every piece of exercise equipment needs removal because it’s not being used. Sometimes, it’s a piece of equipment that works perfectly but needs upgrading or just isn’t cutting it for the type of exercise you’re looking for. For example, your elliptical from the 80’s you inherited from your parents doesn’t have the bells and whistles you’d like to help with your marathon training. But how do you responsibly get rid of this bulky piece of equipment that’s difficult to move on your own? Here are 4 options for elliptical removal.

4 Options for Elliptical Removal

  1. Sell It

    If your elliptical is in good condition, safe to use, and you can hold on to it for a little while, try listing it for sale on Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist. You could make some extra money to go towards your new elliptical. Even selling it for between $50-200 would get you closer to your savings goal and also garner interest for a quick sale. And if you have a vehicle that could transport the elliptical, you could charge a delivery fee.

  2. Give It Away

    If you’re not concerned with making any money from the old elliptical but want it to go to someone who could use it, there are still plenty of options available for who could take it off your hands. Call friends, family, and local charities. Chances are one of those three would be glad to take it off your hands or knows of someone who would. Don’t forget to call YMCAs or local schools; they might be able to utilize the elliptical in gym classes or after school programs.

    You could try placing the elliptical at the end of your driveway with a “FREE” sign attached to it. You might be able to make your elliptical disappear with minimal effort on your part.

  3. Recycle It

    If your old elliptical is run down and completely unusable, you could try to recycle it yourself. Most ellipticals can be taken apart with tools you probably have lying around your house. If you choose this route, be sure you research where to properly recycle each part. Call your local recycling facility to find if out if you’ll have to deconstruct it completely or if certain pieces can be left assembled.

  4. Hire A Local Junk Removal Company

    You might come to the conclusion that hiring someone else to deal with it entirely is the best option for you. And that’s where Moving U & Junk U comes in. If your elliptical still works, we’ll try to donate it to someone who can use it. And if it’s completely unusable, we’ll responsibly recycle it for you. We’ll take care of all the hard work and heavy lifting of your elliptical removal. Simply show us the elliptical, and we’ll get it out of your way so you can enjoy your extra basement or living room space or make room for your new elliptical.
