If you wish to look into getting rid of your old grill on your own, you can start by contacting your local recycling or scrap metal salvage facility to see if they accept old grills. Keep in mind, you may need to also take the grill apart before dropping it off.
If you have hot charcoal you need to dispose of, you need to be very careful before attempting to get rid of it. It’s important to let the ashes cool for at least 48 hours, or pour water on them to make sure they are completely cool before you move them. Any hot ashes could start a fire, so this is extremely important.
The next step depends on what type of charcoal you have. Wood fire ash can go in the compost, and so can lump charcoal that is made just from wood. Charcoal briquette needs to go to the landfill, as it contains chemicals. Wrap them up in foil or place them in a small container, and then throw them in an outdoor trash bin.
If you have large amounts of charcoal that you need to get rid of along with your barbecue, we can take it away along with the grill.
