How do I dispose of a hot tub?
Spa removal isn’t as easy as taking out the trash. Hot tubs are large, nearly impossible to move on your own, and are typically not accepted at local landfills or recycling depots.

There are several ways to get rid of your old hot tub, including:

>> Trading it in to a dealer
>> Selling it online or at a yard sale
>> Hiring a junk removal company to help remove it

To get your hot tub ready for removal, there are a few things you’ll need to do ahead of time:

  1. Disconnect the power supply.
  2. Drain all of the water from the tub.
  3. Disassemble all of the spa’s parts, such as pumps, heaters, power, and plumbing.
  4. Pack the tub’s accessories separately.
  5. Clear a path wide enough to fit the tub through.
