Disposing of a glass table top is much trickier than taking out the garbage; it’s heavy, large, needs to be recycled, and (can be) dangerous.
In this short & friendly guide, we’ll take you step-by-step through the process and explain precisely how to dispose of your glass table top.
Step #1 – Check for the nearest recycling station
You can do so easily by typing ‘glass recycling near me’ on Google.
Once you find the nearest place, it’s better to call them ahead and check their requirements, if there’s any fee included, and if you get paid for your glass.
Step #2 – See if you have what it takes to DIY
There are a few things you should consider before disposing of your glass table top yourself:
- How heavy or large is your glass table top?
- If it’s heavy or oversized – do you have someone to help you with the lifting? Are you both feeling comfortable with lifting heavy items?
- Will the glass table top fit in your car?
If your glass table top is too heavy or large, if you don’t have experience lifting heavy items, or if your glass table top doesn’t fit in your car – It’s safer, easier, and better to hire a junk removal company that handles the disposal and recycling process for you quickly.
Step #3 – Get ready for the ride
If you’ve passed step 2 without needing to call professionals, the next step is to prepare your glass table top for the ride.
If possible, separate the glass table top from the rest of the table.
If it’s not a rounded glass table top, you should cover any sharp corners before you lift it; you can use old towels or any old cloth for the job, or use cardboard and tape\tie it well to cover the sharp corners without moving.
It’s a good idea to prepare your car to keep it safe; again, you can do that either with old pieces of cloth (towels, etc.) or use cardboard.
Step #4 – Just do it – safely!
The next and final step is to lift your glass table top to your car. If it’s a heavy or a large glass table top, it’s much safer and easier to use the help of a friend.
Drive to the nearest glass recycling station, follow their orders, and that’s it!
You’ve done something good for the planet, and your old glass table top will turn into something better! (you might see it later in a different form! Maybe a wine bottle?)
