Some municipalities offer bulky item pick-up services or spring clean-up programs for residents. Large appliances, such as washers, dryers and dishwashers, are usually included in these programs and can be picked up for free. Private recycling or disposal companies can also be hired to haul away the appliances for you. The BC Hydro “Fridge Buy-Back Program” has been permanently discontinued.
