Where can I dispose of exercise equipment?

Where you can dispose of old gym equipment varies from place to place, since each local area often has different rules and regulations for these types of items. If you wish to dispose of it on your own, you’ll need to check with your local recycling or garbage pickup service to find out where to take these items. Keep in mind that in many cases, larger items can’t be picked up by these services, which means you’ll need to transport it yourself.

If you want to skip the hassle, hire a professional junk removal company. At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we’re junk removal experts and are familiar with the local rules regarding disposal of exercise equipment. Let us take care of everything for you—we’ll do all the heavy lifting and make sure your junk gets donated, recycled, or properly disposed of. Just point and junk disappears!

If your equipment is still in good working order, you may be able to find a local organization that is willing to take it off your hands. Check with your local community center, senior center, and other community groups to see if anyone is interested in taking it off your hands.

At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we work closely with charities and local community groups to collect items for donation. If you have exercise equipment that is still in good shape, let us know and we will do our best to find it a new home.

Does Goodwill accept exercise equipment?

Many locations are able to accept smaller items such as light weights, resistance bands, and sports equipment. However, most are not able to take larger items such as treadmills, elliptical trainers, weight racks, etc. At 1-800-GOT-JUNK? we work with a number of community organizations and will do our best to donate these items where possible. In the event that an item can’t be donated, we will ensure it gets recycled or properly disposed of.
