Types of Hot Tubs We Take
Portable Hot Tubs (Spa)
Though portable hot tubs are more accessible to remove than the custom-built ones, they still require appropriate handling because of the materials they’re made from and, of course, their dimensions. They are heavy, hard to move and sometimes have to be broken down before proceeding. Even if you manage to drag it with your family or neighbors, most cities won’t pick them up curbside because of state recycling regulations.
There are tons of different hot tub designs out there. Still, commonly they contain materials like inflammable latex or vinyl, fiberglass, acrylic, polyethylene or another type of plastic, which can be recycled, or else, disposed of in an eco-friendly way. In case you need a hand with the heavy lifting, let us know — we look forward to serving you!
Custom-Built Hot Tubs
A custom-built hot tub, or in-ground tub, is a bit more challenging to handle than the portable one: it’s filled with a few hundreds of gallons of water, has electrical hookups, and is built-in to a deck or foundation. Not to mention the dimensions. But no job is too big or small when WE JUNK. Our professional hauling team is going to dispose of your used custom-made hot tub, but most importantly, they know how to do that in an eco-friendly way.
Hot tubs and Jacuzzis are commonly constructed of the same materials that pools are made of (concrete, fibreglass, gunite, stainless steel, tile, copper), but can also be built from wood or recycled materials, such as metal bins or barrels. At We Junk, we believe that proper disposal matters; that’s why if you’re willing to get rid of your old hot tub – let us know.

Regular freestanding and the clawfoot bathtubs contain materials that can be retrieved and reused.

But an important thing to keep in mind is that it’s always better to call ahead to confirm that the recycling facility will accept such materials. The easier way is to call the local junk removal team, like WE JUNK, and relax staying rest assured that the matter would be taken care of responsibly.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to dispose of an old hot tub?
DONATE. If you’re willing to dispose of your unwanted tub in a green way, try looking for a local charity or recycling organization. If it’s in good condition, donating an item will profit you with tax-deductions and a chance to help someone in need. Nonprofits, such as Make a Wish Foundation, Habitat for Humanity or Salvation Army, will find a use for your unwanted belongings and reward you for doing that.
RECYCLE. Depending on the material your hot tub is made from, it may or may not be recycled. For example, acrylic bathtubs are difficult to recycle, as acrylic is not biodegradable. In such a case, your best option would be upcycling, which is repurposing a used tub for something around the house.
REMOVE. Whether it’s a clawfoot bathtub or a custom-built spa, a professional junk removal company, like WE JUNK, is going to get the job done and leave you to rest assured that your items will not end up in a landfill. WE JUNK responsibly because WE CARE.
