Old Grill Removal: What to Know
It has served you well for many years now. It’s cooked your food and provided it with a tasty flavor that you can’t get from the oven.
Your grill has likely been your best friend in summer for BBQs, get-togethers, and those nights where you don’t want to heat up the house. However, it no longer works, or you’re tired of the same grill and want to upgrade.
Regardless of the reason why you no longer want your current grill, it’s time to throw it away so that you can get a new one. Gas grills often have propane tanks attached to them. You cannot put that in your trash can or a dumpster. It is illegal to do so in Pennsylvania. There can be other parts that shouldn’t go in a landfill that could be recycled, as well.

The Issue with Gas Grills
Most grills have a variety of components that use cast iron, aluminized steel, or stainless steel. They might be porcelain-coated, as well. While these things don’t necessarily leech anything into the ground, they never decompose (or it takes a long time for it to break down). Pennsylvania wants to make the state a safer, healthier place, which means recycling whenever possible. Luckily, all of these materials can be recycled.
Of course, the propane tank itself can also be recycled because it’s made of steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, composite materials, or stainless steel. You cannot throw the tank itself away in the trash, even if you empty it first. Usually, you don’t get all of the propane out, so it can leak into the ground and get into the water we drink.
Many times, the propane tank is still good. You can actually remove it from the old grill and use it for the new one. However, some homeowners prefer to switch to charcoal grills. If that’s the case, you may not need to use a propane tank for other purposes. When that happens, you want to get rid of it safely and correctly.
Junk Removal companies
Companies and homeowners call on us to clean out yards, homes, basements, and garages. This often includes old grills that can’t be used anymore or that you hope to replace. Of course, we don’t require you to clean it up or remove the propane tanks first.
It’s often dangerous if you don’t have the right skills and tools. The technicians we send to your house are proficient and efficient. They arrive on time to pick up and take away your old grills (charcoal and gas). Once we’ve done that, you are free and clear. However, we don’t stop there. We take the grills apart and recycle them at the right facilities. The parts that cannot be recycled are disposed of correctly.
Often, people want to upgrade their grill, so the old one still works. If that’s the case, we try to make sure that it goes to a family that needs one and cannot afford one. This way, it lives out its lifespan and makes someone else happy as it did you for all of those years.
Wherever possible, we choose companies that pay cash for discarded grills and other equipment. These places are the first stop. If any money is received from your old grill, we are going to add a credit to your bill. This can save you money and help others.
