Recycling & Waste

Space Heater

Legal Considerations

State law requires appliances to be processed to remove hazardous components prior to recycling the scrap metal.


Proper disposal depends on the type of heater (electric, oil-filled or propane). See Heaters-Propane.​

Oil-filled space heaters should be drained first. Bring oil to the household hazardous waste collection sites for free.

Bring drained space heaters to one of the disposal companies listed below. Call to verify items accepted, hours and fees.
