4 Things Not To Do With Your Broken Microwave

Picture of a broken microwave.

You went to throw some Bagel Bites in your microwave the other day. You thought, “Hey, this’ll taste good enough!”

Everything was going just fine. But then, the worst thing ever happened. Your microwave…didn’t work!


Yes. The world has ended. No hyperbole there whatsoever. All good things must come to an end, and now it’s time to take care of your broken microwave.

I can beg it to come back.


It’s gone, dude. Let it go.

But, I can fix it!


Unless you’re a licensed professional, no, you probably can’t.

Fine! Then can I use it to test out my fireworks?

…What? No! Are you freaking kidding? I can’t believe I have to say this. You can NOT test fireworks in your microwave. Wait, what are you….


FINE! But I’m going to use it to store my leftover pizza.


No, you also…Wait, I guess that’s okay. Still, you’re better off using your refrigerator and getting a new microwave.

Well, what can I do with my broken microwave? Recycle it?!

YES! You can totally recycle your old microwave, and we’ll do it for you carefully and responsibly.

At Certified Recycling, we take broken appliances, hold quick memorial services, then begin removing hazardous materials and stripping down parts to be recycled. Hazardous parts go to special facilities while recyclables are sent off to be melted down and reused in new appliances.
