Step 1: Acquire body...

Step 2: Contact cousin Tony who works in "waste management"

Step 3: Profit.

Option 1: Buy a new fridge from a place that will take away your old appliances as part of the sale.

Option 2: Haul it to the dump. Or Edmonton. No difference.

Option 3: Hire a guy off Kijiji to haul it away.

Option 4: List it on Kijiji as works fine.

Yeah, I would love for Jiggy_12 to get me the same price I can get for the fridge I want from DirectBuy.

I'd ask local used appliance places if they want it. Better option than just dumping it. I did this with my old stove.

Most of these places will take non working units. They will try to repair them, and if they can't be repaired scrap them for metal and parts.

The fastest way to contact someone who does this is to list it on kijiji for free. My experience with a not working stove listed as such was that a guy messaged within 5 minutes, and showed up at my house with a truck, ramp and dollies within 2 hours. Great deal imo.

The most price effective option is to ask the company you're buying the new fridge from to haul away the old one. The brick and best buy do this for $30-60 I think

The second most price effective option is to get a friend to help you haul it to the curb and then call some guy on Kijiji to pick it up from the curb. Will be about the same price.

Old stoves are worth donating. Old fridges that are already dying are not good donations.

They’re not the only ones making disposable appliances. Our old fridge was a 2012 Kitchenaid, and it died early this year. Well, it didn’t die so much as the jazz board failed. We hired a technician to fix it, and discovered Kitchenaid discontinued production of the jazz board for that model. But hey, you can buy a virtually identical model to it today, brand new.

And so we did because we really loved the fridge, but barely seven years of usage is bugger-all for a refrigerator.

There’s apparently no money in making a refrigerator that lasts a decade or more.

I just had to replace fridge a couple of months ago, after our 18 year old Kenmore died. We ended up buying new fridge/stove from the Bay, as they matched HD/Lowes etc. prices and hauled the old crap away for free. Other places were charging $50 or so.

It's really a shame. Why bother even having a fridge if you can't listen to smooth jazz while you use it?

If only Amazon would stop fighting with Google so I could listen to smooth jazz remixes through our Echo in the kitchen.

It's amazing some of the crap people will come and take when you advertise it for free on Kijiji.

That's not bad for a Samsung TBH. Samsung years are like dog years.
