How to Dispose of an Old Lawnmower

OK, it’s getting to the end of summer and you’re probably getting tired of cutting the grass. It might be more exciting if you had a new lawnmower. Sadly, it could be time to get rid of that beloved old clunker you’ve had for years, or time to finally carry off the one that has become an eyesore of a lawn ornament.

Why not splurge on one of the newer models with self-propelled wheels or a shiny lawn tractor? There are probably some really good end-of-season sales.

Now that you’re all excited about a new mower, you might begin to wonder, then, how to dispose of your old mower, especially if it is one of the larger, tractor-type riding mowers. Depending on its condition, you might be able to sell it. But if you’re like many, you’ve probably gotten all the good years out of it you possibly can. Let us help.

How to Dispose of an Old Lawnmower

Here are some of the ways to dispose of an old lawnmower:

Sell It

You can advertise a working mower for sale locally. Tell the potential buyers the year, condition, engine size, mower type, model number, and deck width.

Break it Down for Parts

If you’re buying a similar model you might want to keep a few extra parts around. You can also try to sell spare parts through local channels.

Give it Away

There might be a trade school, educational facility or charity who would like to have your old mower to recondition and sell, or use for their own purposes. Always check with the organization before delivering it. There’s always an online giveaway platform like Freecycle as well.

Call 123JUNK

123JUNK is a perfect resource for taking that old mower off your hands. We’ll haul it away for you! But before we can pick up your mower, you will have to drain the gas and oil from it into a Department of Transportation-approved container. We are not legally allowed to transport these hazardous chemicals.

123JUNK can repurpose a working mower back into the community through one of our charitable organizations and we will provide you a receipt for your donation. Not donation-worthy? No problem — we can deliver it to the recycling station where scrap metals can be recycled.

We’ll be glad to pick up your old mower, whether it is electric, gas, riding or even a good old-fashioned push mower—and any other household items you’d like to dispose of. If you are located in Northern Virginia, Maryland or Washington, D.C., please give 123JUNK a call to schedule your pickup.
