How do you dispose of a broken piano?

Getting rid of your old piano is not as simple as throwing it into the trash. Pianos are large and made of materials that do not naturally break down.

Here is how you can properly get rid of your old piano:

  1. Determine if your broken piano is beyond repair - if it can be fixed, it may have more value being donated.
  2. Check to see if your local trash or junk removal service, charities, and recycling facility accepts pianos or offers piano disposal service.
  3. Schedule a pickup time with piano movers.
  4. Clear a path.

Your best option is to hire professionals who have the tools to handle it for you.

How do I donate or recycle a piano?

One way to dispose of an old piano is by making a tax-deductible donation, but the size and condition is an important factor in the organization's donation acceptance and some will accept pianos that need repairs.

There are many places that accept piano donations, including:

  • Nonprofit organizations
  • Schools
  • Social groups
  • Retirement homes
  • Recreation centers
  • Service clubs
  • Afterschool programs.

Can pianos be recycled?

Pianos are made of wood, steel wire, screws, and cast iron which can be recycled once it is broken down. If you are looking to give your piano a second chance at life, check with your local recycling centers to find out if they will accept a used piano and how much it will cost to deliver it.
