Do you live in one the towns, does the chatarra truck pass by your house?  They are the ones that go around and buy old appliances and scrap metal and stuff.  Maybe, someone on here will have their number.

Leave them on your cub and they will be either sold for scrap, repaired and re-used, or repurposed. Not much goes to waste here. My trash cans are always being fished through.

If you leave on curb, block the fridge doors so kids can't climb inside and suffocate.

How would you block a door to keep out curious children? Removing the door is the only really safe way.

Where were you two weeks ago when I needed that number bmh? Jaja. I was never at home when he passed by so finally had to put a note on the garage door asking that he call me. He did, yes that's the #, and he took away my dead 20 year old dryer the following day. (That, by the way, is a truck that patrols Ajijic. Not sure if there are different trucks in different towns.)

Put it outside with a For Sale (Se Vende)  $2000 pesos sign on it and someone will steal it within an hour. Problem solved.

This made me laugh because it's so true about the fished cans. We had a microwave that caught on fire. I stuck it out for the garbagemen and put a sign on it in Spanish and English that said it was dangerous, etc. It was gone in less than 20 minutes -- and we live at the end of a cul-de-sac!

It's closed storage whether it's plugged in or not. ;)

When we replaced our refrigerator in San Miguel, we offered the old one to our housekeeper. It wasn't really old but I wanted a larger freezer space with a separate door. She was ecstatic. One day, I asked her how the fridge was working and she told me that it made too much noise in a small house with no windows. She said she loved it because it kept critters (four legged) out of her food supply in her open to the air kitchen.

One person's junk is another person's treasure.

Yep...one person's trash can be a treasure to another.

I put my burned out microwave curbside for trash pick up

with a note stating the condition

and it was gone before the trash truck came by.

Great!
