You are assuming that whatever is broken is serviceable. Not all things ARE fixable. But, if the treadmill is of relative good quality, you could very well be correct. I once had a very good quality home treadmill ("prosumer" quality) that died after a few years. It turned out to be a motor issue. They were able to swap out the part and, after parts and labor, I was only out ~100 bucks. I recently heard from the person who now has that treadmill and they tell me it is still in good working order. Not bad for a treadmill I bought almost 15 years ago.

What others have said about the scrap collectors is so true. It really is incredible. I have seen those guys driving around and they waste NO TIME. If they spot anything that looks remotely metallic, they will pull over, get off their pick ups, inspect it with a quick glance over and make a quick, on-the-spot decision, and then move on. They work fast, and appear/disappear in no time.

Just leave it at the curb, some junk collector or scrapper will pick it up.

Put it in your front yard it will be gone in 10 minutes.


And put a piece of paper with "FREE" on it.

Or, you can try:
- there's a facebook group called SwapJC
- post on Craigslist

I've done both with free stuff in the past, and people really, really love FREE stuff!



What kind of asshole puts a FREE sign on a broken treadmill so that someone else can lug it home and then find out it doesn't work??


What kind of idiot looks at a free treadmill on the side of the road, or someone's yard, and doesn't consider the possibility that it may not work?

If it's mostly metal then put it at the curb. The scrap metal guy's who drive around the city with pick-up trucks looking for scrap metal. The scrappers must have radar or something because they will find it with in a couple of hours.

Or give JCIA a call and schedule a pickup. They'll tell you when to leave it out at the curb. It's free.
