And Still Keep Your Cool

How to Get Rid of a Hot Tub

When you’re looking for a tranquil escape from the daily grind, a hot tub can certainly help let off some steam. However, getting rid of such a bulky item can leave you in hot water with waste management. Luckily, there are several options for hot tub removal that allow you to keep your cool.

How to Get Rid of Your Hot Tub

If you have an old hot tub that either doesn’t work or you just don’t want anymore, getting rid of it is more complicated than simply putting it out with the trash. Before you put it anywhere, remember to drain the water a few days before removal so it has time to fully dry, This makes transport easier. Here are some options for what comes next.

  1. Sell. If your hot tub is practically brand new, try to sell it online. Specify whether or not you’re willing to help move it.
  2. Donate. If your hot tub still works and is only gently used, consider reaching out to friends, family, neighbors, or local charities to see if you can donate it. Some organizations may even pick it up.
  3. Trade. When buying a new hot tub, you may be able to trade in the old one. This could also cover removal of the old one when they deliver the new one.
  4. Repurpose. Where are all the DIYers? Consider turning the tub into something new. How about a raised garden bed, dry lounge area, or ball pit? Get creative!
  5. Dismantle. Some hot tub parts are recyclable. You can take it apart and sell the metal or electronic components as replacement parts. Keep in mind certain electronic elements are considered e-waste, so they require special disposal.
  6. Junk removal service. If no one wants to take it and you don’t feel like taking it apart, the easiest option is to call a professional.
