How to Dispose of a Vacuum.

In some places, throwing your vacuum in the trash is illegal, and when it comes down to recycling it, while every part may be made with recyclable materials, it requires a lot of disassembling first.

If you want to do the right thing for the vacuum and the environment, here are some ways to safely get rid of an unwanted vacuum.

How to Get Rid of an Old Vacuum

  1. Set it outside for free pickup. If you set your vacuum outside early enough, it won’t be sitting for long. People who fix devices or who need them for parts will come by and pick them up very quickly. Just because you may not want to get your vacuum cleaner fixed, doesn’t mean it’s not worth a little bit of money to somebody else.
  2. Put it up for sale on eBay. If you’re not comfortable putting the vacuum out front or you don’t live in a space where that is an option, you can always list yours on eBay. Even completely broken vacuum cleaners sell for a couple of bucks.
  3. Drop it off at your local waste-management facility. In some locations, the local waste management facility will have a space for the disposal of vacuum cleaners and other household type appliances. The best way to figure this out is by checking their website or giving them a call.
  4. Check your manufacturer’s warranty. Some companies, like the ZeroG Weightless Vac, offer not only a 30-day money-back guarantee, but they will also service the vacuum if it should ever have mechanical problems. When it breaks, you don’t have to throw it away; you can send it back for repairs.


If you find yourself constantly throwing out non-working vacuums, then it’s probably time for you to invest in a quality machine such as the ZeroG. Not only does the ZeroG Weightless Vac have a 30-day money-back guarantee, but it also has superior suctioning power, patented edge-cleaning technology, and a wealth of attachments to make vacuuming your favorite chore. We stand behind our vacuum so it won’t need to be discarded. If your ZeroG needs repairs, we will send replacement parts/assemblies to you so that you can be back up and running in just a few days.
