How do you dispose of a broken piano?

Due to their size and the materials they are made of, pianos can be tricky to get rid of on your own. Every city and town is different and therefore has different rules around piano disposal. You may not simply be able to have the piano collected by your public trash removal service, which means you’ll be solely responsible for loading it up and transporting it to the appropriate facility. (This could be a recycling depot or landfill.)

It’s much easier to hire a professional service to handle your piano disposal for you. At 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, we offer full-service junk removal. We do all the heavy lifting for you—we’ll remove the piano right from where it’s located and load it into our trucks. All you have to do is point! From there, we’ll make sure it gets to the right place, whether it’s being donated, recycled, or disposed of.

Can you donate a piano?

Yes, there are many places that accept piano donations. However, this largely depends on the size and condition of your piano. If your piano is in good working condition, it will be easier to donate. There may be organizations in your area that also accept pianos in need of repair.
