It is not easy to get rid of an old vacuum cleaner that doesn’t suck! There are companies that will take your old vacuum cleaners and donate or recycle them appropriately when you buy new ones, but the simple act of recycling a vacuum can be challenging. Here are some options for you when it comes time to disposing of old vacuum cleaners in a proper manner.
Located in the Chantilly, Virginia area, GoVacuum has a sustainable heart for vacuum cleaners and their parts! As a trade in, most brands of vacuums will earn you $10 to $50 worth of credit, and the store credit issued can be used to purchase any item on the GoVacuum.com website, including accessories, air purifiers, etc. If you have no need for credit but still wish to recycle your vacuum and avoid the landfill, send them your machine and GoVacuum will ensure proper recycling – because of their 99% no-landfill policy, they are setting the standard for the industry. Their partnership with Forever Green Recycling helps make the best use of repairable vacuums, and assure the proper disposal of retired vacuum cleaners.
To top if off, you will have a TREE IN BRAZIL’S ATLANTIC FOREST planted in your name just for recycling a vacuum cleaner with GoVacuum.

If no other options seem feasible, ask your County Recycling center or Town Manager for their advice on proper disposal of appliances. Most jurisdictions have available resources to help their community keep e-waste out of the landfill, for the safety of their residents.
