There are many recycling companies which use metal and scrap it. Water heaters have a good percentage of metal content made of steel, copper or brass. Basically your useless old water heater could be gold for a recycling company. You can check with the Edmonton Reuse Center or any other recycling company. Some recycling companies even arrange for transport and pick up the water heater from your doorstep.
You can even contact your local garbage service who would pick up your old water heater from your doorstep. Some of the garbage service centers have a recycle program through which they can refurbish your heating unit.
Call Local Landfill
Another option is the local landfill service. You can contact them to find out if they can take your old water heater. They usually have a recycling program which takes care of such products. You can pay them a minimum fee and they will help you get rid of your old water heater.
Sometimes people end up getting a new water heater because they need more hot water than their old water heater can deliver. In that case if your water heater is in good working condition, you can consider donating it.
