Disposing of your old washing machine can be quite a challenge, if only because it’s not something that’s done every day. It’s not a simple matter of throwing out the trash, after all. You may be wondering if you can sell, recycle, or donate it. You may also wonder where you can safely (and legally) dispose of it.
When you hire a Tasker to take care of washing machine removal and disposal, you get an expert who can help you navigate the entire process of getting rid of your old appliance.
Though this may vary from Tasker to Tasker, they may be able to help you prepare for the removal process as well - making sure the tub is clean, the exterior is wiped down, and that the cords and hoses are disconnected and secured. Feel free to ask your Tasker about how to prepare before they pick up your old washing machine.
When your Tasker arrives, they’ll have the necessary equipment and transport for removing your washing machine. You won’t need to provide any tools or hire a vehicle yourself.
Once your old washing machine is loaded into the truck or van, the Tasker will transport it to your chosen destination. This could mean your town’s solid waste management facility, a recycling plant, or the manufacturer. Just specify your destination in the task post.
If you’re unfamiliar with where to send your broken washing machine, your Tasker may be able to share several options with you as well.
You can choose to either recycle or donate your old washing machine. If it’s in good working condition, you can give it to a low-income family who can still use it.
You can do this through a trusted organisation like the Salvation Army or Red Cross.
If your washing machine is no longer operational, you can have it recycled by a waste management facility. Some manufacturers and retailers may also accept old appliances, since recycling old parts is more cost-effective. Also, washing machines can be hazardous to leave in landfills, so it’s best to ask a specialist about how to dispose of it safely.

I need my washing machine uninstalled and moved to my new home. I'll also need to help with moving a wardrobe, a baby cot and my king size bed to my new home. All to be done on the 16th May. I am unsure on exactly what time I will be getting the keys to my new home on that day, but if someone is available during the afternoon/evening for about an hour then that will great.

We need our old washing machine and tumble drier which are currently in the basement putting in the back garden for collection by the council. They are both very heavy and will presumably require at least 2 strong people to lift. The basement is down 1 flight of stairs, and there are steps down into the back garden too. We have a wheelchair ramp at the front so this might be an alternative route to avoid the steps too.
Great communication and speedy delivery. Thanks Luke!

I will need someone to source a wooden pallet, take the pallet to the retirement home (where the top loader is located), move the top loading washing machine on to the pallet, secure/fasten the top loader to the pallet so I can then have the machine collected via pallet courier.

I am moving between apartments in the same building and I want to swap the washing machines over, (i.e. 2 machines need moving). There are wide communal corridors and a lift to assist with the move between the 3rd and 5th floor apartments. However, one of the apartments is a duplex and the washing machine cupboard is located upstairs; the machines will need to be carried down/up a tight L-shaped staircase without damaging the walls. I need the work doing before close of play on Monday 28th Sept. but am flexible between now and then.
