Recycling & Waste



In some rare cases, a safe may contain concrete or asbestos insulation. If you know your safe contains concrete or asbestos, it is not accepted for recycling.


Safes can be recycled as scrap metal. Bring scrap metal to one of the recycling companies listed below. Call to verify items accepted, hours and fees.

If the safe is too heavy to lift, contact your trash hauler for pickup options.
