Pianos generate sounds that music lovers describe to be “mellow,” “bright,” “rich,” and “splendid.” Pianos are played by musicians, religious organizations, cruise ships, commercial establishments, wedding venues, Broadway musicals, concert halls, and opera houses. The life expectancy of a good instrument is around 40 years when properly maintained.
While some musicians are satisfied with keeping their piano for the entirety of its longevity, others aren’t as much. As new piano technology and designs are released, the piano will become outdated. Some owners feel about their pianos only after several years of usage.
If you decide that it’s time to upgrade your piano, find a removal service as the next step. The junk elimination service has assisted thousands of residents as well as businesses. We collect, haul, and drop off preowned pianos at a garbage dump or collection center recycling facilities or waste transfer facility.
Is It Legal To Dispose Of An Old Piano In A Community Dumpster?
Yes and no, because it is based on the local municipality’s garbage disposal laws. Some cities are willing to accept large objects like a piano but only when removed from a landfill. The dumpster may also belong to an area-based garbage collection service provider. So, it would be best not to throw your old piano into a nearby dumpster before you verify the legality.
Prepare Your Old Piano For Recycling
You can recycle the piano you have had for a while. But, it won’t be possible until you have dismantled your old piano. However, recycling centers can accept large pianos only if they’re broken down into pieces. In this situation, you’ll need to disassemble your piano to determine which parts are recyclable and what are not.
Components made of metal, wood, and plastic can be recycled. Electronic components can also be eligible for recycling. If you have any concerns, you can reach our recycling center directly.
Our Piano Removal Made Easy
Pianos are very heavy pieces; they weigh between 300 to 1,400 pounds. These pianos can be purchased as a whole unit. The heavier the piano, the more manpower is required for the installation process. When you decide to junk the piano, you will need the same workers to complete the installation. A dolly can reduce the need to hire a team of workers to lift and move the piano. This is also true for the removal procedure.
Our residential and commercial piano removal services are easy to access, cheap, affordable, flexible, and customizable. We employ special equipment to disassemble, remove, and dispose of pianos that weigh a lot.
When you contact our junk removal service to get rid of your piano, we’ll send a team of experts to your house. A qualified expert will assess the piano to determine the best removal strategy to eliminate the risk of mishaps, which could cause injury to the members of the junk collection team.
You will receive an estimate in writing to confirm prior to implementing the piano removal strategy. If you approve, then the junk removal crew will initiate the removal. But, first, we will move the piano into a safe place to dismantle it to prepare for recycling.
A safe place is chosen, the piano is disassembled, and the parts are loaded in the back of our truck. The pile of scrap is then hauled to a recycling facility for recycling.
How To Dispose Of A Piano Without Harming The Environment?
There are three options for disposal to dispose of old pianos. Each disposal method comes with pros and pros. For instance, landfill disposal isn’t as eco-friendly as donation and recycling. In addition, when pianos are disposed of in landfills, they sit around for long, creating methane and carbon dioxide, dangerous greenhouse gases.
Recycling – is one of the most eco-friendly disposal methods, as it allows the parts to be reused for various uses. The wood is then broken into pieces for OSB plywood, mulch, the pulp (paper), and grill wood chips.
Donation – This will allow your old piano to continue to function as a piece and play beautiful music for years to become. This option is not suitable for severely damaged pianos but only for units in good condition.
Dump – This is an excellent disposal option for pianos that have been permanently damaged. Lying in a dump, older pianos release greenhouse gases that harm the environment.
