Pianos can be tedious and take up more space than they need, especially if they continue to be unused. Many people get stuck with their old Digital, Upright and even Grand Pianos that was inherited or beyond repair.
Though often an instrument that has been in the family for years, or you thought you would pick up as a hobby, pianos sometimes need to go. Lots of older pianos are made with quality woods that could be used for other things. The ivories, cast iron plates and other metal parts can be recycled.
If your piano has reached the end of its life and if you are not willing to pay to have it properly restored or repaired, the responsible thing to do is to dispose and proper disposal should be adhered to prevent unnecessary fines.
