Pianos produce sounds. Avid music fans describe them as “mellow,” “bright,” “rich,” and “splendid.” Pianos are used by religious and professional groups, musicians, business establishments, cruise ships, wedding locations, Broadway musicals, concert halls, and the opera house. The average life span of a good piano lasts for 40 years when properly maintained.
While some musicians are delighted with keeping their piano throughout its longevity, others aren’t so much. As new technology and designs are developed, your piano becomes outdated. Unfortunately, it’s the way some owners see their pianos after a few years of use.
If you decide that it’s time to upgrade your piano, locate a removal service as the next task. The junk elimination service has helped hundreds of residents and businesses. We haul, collect, and drop off preowned pianos at a dump, collection center recycling facilities, or waste transfer center.
Is It Legal To Dispose Of An Old Piano In A Community Dumpster?
Yes and no, since it is based on the local municipality’s garbage disposal laws. Some cities are willing to accept large objects such as a piano but only when taken to a dump. The dumpster could also belong to the local garbage collection service. So, it would help if you did not throw your old piano in any neighborhood dumpster until after verifying the legalities.
Prepare Your Old Piano For Recycling
It is possible to recycle the piano you have had for a while. However, it may not be possible until you disassemble the old piano. Recycling centers can accept big pianos, but only if they’re broken down into pieces. In this scenario, it is necessary to disassemble your piano to determine which parts are recyclable and which ones are not.
Components constructed from metal, wood, and plastic may be recycled. Electronic components might also be eligible to be recycled. If you’re interested in finding out more, you can reach recyclers directly.
Our Piano Removal Made Easy
Pianos are extremely heavy objects, weighing between 300 and 1,400 pounds. These pianos can be purchased as a complete package. The larger the piano, the more manpower is required for the installation process. When you decide to junk your piano, you’ll need the same amount as the initial installation. Employing a dolly reduces recruiting workers to lift and move the piano. The same is true for the removal process.
Our residential and commercial piano removal services are cheap, affordable, flexible, and customizable. We utilize special equipment to disassemble the piano, disassemble it, take it off, and dispose of heavy pianos.
When you contact our junk removal service to get rid of the piano you’ve had for a while, we’ll send a group of experts to your home. A certified expert will inspect your piano to decide on the best removal strategy to minimize the chance of an accident, which could cause injury to an employee from our junk collection team.
The client will receive an estimate in writing to confirm before we begin the strategy for removing pianos. After your approval, we will then send out the junk elimination team to start the removal. The piano will be moved to a secure location where it will be disassembled to be ready for recycling. The scrap pile is then taken to a recycling facility to be disposed of.
How To Dispose Of A Piano Without Harming The Environment?
There are three methods of disposal to dispose of old pianos. Each method of disposal has pros and pros. For example, landfill disposal is not as environmentally friendly as recycling or donation. When pianos end up in landfills, they sit around for years, generating methane and carbon dioxide, harmful greenhouse gases.
Recycling – is one of the most eco-friendly disposal methods, as it permits the materials to be reused for various purposes. The wood is broken into pieces for OSB plywood (also known as mulch), pulp (paper), along with grill wood chips.
Donation – This will provide your old piano a chance to remain as a whole unit and produce beautiful tunes for years to be. But, this option is not suitable for permanently damaged pianos, but only for teams in good operating condition.
