Biggest ChallengesLet’s face it, there are a number of ways to reduce household junk. But, this isn’t ordinary trash or something that people clamor for. Instead, old home workout equipment is stuck with a stigma. However, if it’s still in good, working condition, it doesn’t have to continue to take up space.
The staggering numbers [for old fitness equipment] are huge. Imagine the stuff that’s already out there in the world, garages and storage facilities and athletic sheds, the bottoms of closets, schoolyards and back yards and junkyards. In gutters and sewer drains. No sense letting it all go to waste. Pull your smock over your head, pop on your wacky cap and get to repurposing. —Bleacher ReportBasically, there are a few reasons it’s so hard to dispose of old home exercise equipment. One, it’s used. Two, it’s old. And, three, it’s used and old — meaning there’s just not much demand for it. However, this doesn’t mean you’re stuck with it. Yes, it is used. Yes, it is dirty. But, that doesn’t mean there’s no future use for it.
Old Exercise Equipment Disposal in North PortUnless it’s in really bad shape, like ripped up, rusted, worn out, or something similar, you can offload it. But, it’s got to actually be in good, usable condition for this to work. Here are some suggestions for old exercise equipment disposal you can try out:
- Give it away. Since it’s out of date and used, you might consider just giving it away for free. Because it doesn’t cost anything, you’re more likely to find an eager taker. Just ask around and post it on social media.
- Sell it locally. You can also try to sell it locally through an online ad. Be sure to describe it just as it is and its various uses. Price it really cheap to gain interest and make it available for people to see.
- Donate it to charity. Some charities will accept exercise equipment but it usually must be in a good condition. There are charities which sell it in thrift centers and stores who will accept such donations.
- Sell it with the house. If none of the other strategies work, you can simply sell it along with your home. (That is, if you’re selling your house in the first place.)
