#3: How Do I Dispose of Exercise Equipment?

Depending on the condition and age of your treadmill, a donation is always a great option. 

However, it can be difficult to transport a treadmill.

When you let Junk It assist you with the disposal of your treadmill, we will either

  1. Donate the treadmill (depending on the condition)
  2. Recycle the treadmill (depending on the condition); or
  3. Dispose of the treadmill in a landfill if recycling isn’t possible.

#4: Can You Donate My Treadmill to a Charity of My Choosing?

While we will try to honor your choice of charity, unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that your treadmill will be donated to a specific charity. 

While we do work closely with a select few charities within the Portland area, not all charities accept large household or workout items or are located within our service area.

If the logistics align with the charity’s ability to receive such items and are in our serviceable area, we will certainly make our best effort to drop off your old treadmill at the charity of your choosing.

#5: What Information Do I Need to Know Before Booking My Treadmill Disposal?

To help your removal company be prepared to do the job efficiently, you’ll want to know:

  1. The weight of your treadmill; and
  2. What access is like in your home to the treadmill (ie. What floor is it on? Are there stairs? Is there easy parking access for the pick-up vehicle?)
