How to Dispose of Used Marble Counter Tops

Save

Marble countertops can be a lovely addition to your home. However, if you are renovating your kitchen or bathroom, you might decide that your old marble countertops need to be replaced or that another material would be more suitable to you and your family's needs. In this case, you will need to dispose of the marble countertops properly. When installing marble countertops, you could also end with scrap pieces of marble to dispose of.

  • Talk with the contractor who is installing your new countertops when relevant. The contracting company might be able to dispose of the old marble countertops for you.

  • Look for a licensed marble and stone debris and sludge facility or a licensed solid waste disposal facility. Online resources such as Earth911.com can help. Type "stone" into the search box to find places that accept marble.

  • Call the facility to make sure they are licensed by your state to dispose of marble. Let them know that you have marble countertops, which are categorized as marble debris, and make sure they will accept the amount of material you have.

  • Transport the marble countertops to the facility. Remind them that you have marble debris to be disposed of.
