How Do I Get Rid of My Old Playground Equipment?

Having old playground equipment hanging around is annoying. Maybe it’s outdated, no longer used, the area being reappropriated for other purposes, you no longer need it, or it’s actually becoming unsafe to use. No matter what the reason, it has to go.

Well, you do have a few options for removal available, so let’s check them out, shall we?

See if anyone else wants to buy it

Why not try and make some sweet cash from your old playground equipment? If your playground equipment is in relatively good condition (i.e. not falling apart, or dangerous, just tired or unwanted), then you may be able to make some money from it. You can try putting ads up online for your local area on a website like CraigsList. After all, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. If you don’t receive any inquiries, then try reducing the cost.

See if anyone else wants to have it for free

Didn’t get any bites for your old playground equipment, even if you reduced the price and waited a while to see if anyone was interested? Try putting it up for free instead. You can let any interested parties know that they will have to dismantle and move the equipment themselves, or you can offer to help out if you’re feeling in a particularly generous mood.

Helping someone else out by providing something that they want for free is a great, charitable feeling. You might also like to try approaching children’s services in your area to see if they would have any use for the equipment, if you don’t have any success online.

Trash removal services

If no one wanted your equipment, or you think it is unsafe for anyone else to have, then your next option would be to get in the trash removal services to do the dirty work for you. This makes things very easy, as you can sit back and twiddle your thumbs while they dismantle, remove, and dispose of your old playground equipment, although it may come with quite a high price tag.

Dismantle and take to the appropriate local garbage dump

When you don’t want to spend any money removing your equipment, and no one else is interested in taking it off your hands, then you will need to dismantle it yourself, find a vehicle to transport it in, and then take the equipment to the appropriate local government garbage dump.

Often garbage dumps are specific to different materials, so if your equipment is wood or steel, then it would have to go to different dumps. If there are materials in there that you can reuse, such as wood planks for garden beds, or some such, then you should reappropriate as necessary.
