Alternative Ways to Recycle

Manufacturer Take-Back Programs

Some manufacturers offer take-back or recycling programs for their products. LG provides free shipping labels to recycle their electronics, and GE provides free appliance recycling when you replace an existing appliance with a new GE appliance. You can also mail non-working Hamilton Beach appliances back to them, but you are responsible for paying the shipping fee.

Best Buy's Electronics and Appliances Recycling Program

Large appliances can be hauled away for recycling when you purchase a replacement and have it delivered by Geek Squad® or Best Buy Home Delivery (fees apply). Appliances can also be hauled away for a greater fee without a replacement purchase. Find out more.

Home Depot Rebate Finder

You can find what local rebates are available for different appliances by using Home Depot’s Rebate Finder tool. They also offer delivery and removal of large appliances; this service is free after spending $396 or more on one of their large appliances.

Ways to Reduce

Repair It Yourself

Does your microwave have broken pieces that need to be fixed? Order replacement parts from a website such as PartSelect or AppliancePartPros.com so you can repair it yourself.

Ways to Reuse

Still Working? Donate It

If your microwave is still working, sell it for some extra cash, donate it to an organization such as Habitat for Humanity (drop off at their ReStore locations), or give it away using a platform such as Nextdoor, Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace.
