One of the easiest ways to get right of a swing set would be to sell it. This way, the buyer is responsible for getting it off your property. You don’t have to worry about trying to break it down and disposing of it but still get to have it removed. 

Many people have luck selling items like these on social media sites. There are often people looking for swing sets for their children. If you can offer one at a lower price and make some money in the process, everyone wins.

Give it a Makeover

Sometimes a swing set just needs a makeover and it will be as good as new. This may include painting it or swapping out some parts. If your children have grown out of the baby swing, you can replace it with a swing they can use. You can also look for other ways you can customize the swing set so that it’s more useful to you.

Repurpose It

If you can’t use the swing set for its intended use anymore, look at whether it can be repurposed. Some people use the frame and other wood to make flower beds, lounges, and more. You just need to be creative and you’ll be surprised at what you come up with!

Dispose of It

When you can’t sell the swing set or repurpose it, it may be time to dispose of it. This is especially true if the swing set is old and run down. Some pieces of the swing set may be able to be recycled while others will have to be thrown out as junk. 

You want to make sure that you separate the different parts of the swingset so that the parts that can be recycled go to the right place. Depending on the size of the swing set, you may need a small dumpster to dispose of the pieces that are junk. A bulk pick-up may also work depending on how much you have to dispose of.
