Microwave Disposal

Do you find yourself in need of some microwave disposal after updating your kitchen with a new model? Buy a new microwave is great, isn’t it. Food is cooking faster, everything tastes just a bit better, maybe it even runs quieter too. While you’re enjoying a meal cooked in your new microwave it suddenly dawns on you — “what am I going to do with my old microwave?”

Well, here’s the thing about microwave disposal. You may have seen people throw their old microwave out on the curb with the rest of the trash, and that’s because the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not consider old and broken microwaves to be e-waste, which has its own special set of disposal measures.

Technically there’s nothing that says you can’t toss your old microwave out onto the curb, but you would be no fried to the environment by doing that. Why? Because old microwave disposal can be hazardous if not handled properly.

According to the EPA, old microwaves can contain valuable functional components, scrap material, or elements that pose some kind of hazard. For instance, the EPA says to be particularly careful with the electrical charge that may still be in a microwave’s capacitor.

Do you know what to do with a microwave capacitor that still has an electrical charge in it? Did you even know that your microwave even has something called a capacitor? Microwave disposal is not something that the average person would ever think about, so we don’t blame you if you’re drawing a blank right now.

That’s OK, because that’s not something for you to worry about. That’s our job. In fact, we know everything there is to know about how to dispose of a microwave. How’s that for bragging rights? But in all seriousness we know how to handle microwave disposal properly, in a way that’s environmentally friendly.
