you could dump it in the Cherry Creek River, or better yet, call your local municipality as they have certain days (or appointments) where they collect large appliances, mattresses, etc.

We ended up unloading our old dryer to Salvation army. Call them up, schedule a pick up. They'll come get it, just leave it on the curb or driveway on the assigned day with a sign "salvation Army"

Free of charge.

I'd second the donation thing.  that or leave it by the curb with a sign that says "free"

Does the "free" thing work here?

I used to do it in CA all the time. We put all sorts of stuff on the curb and it was always gone by the next day.

It is my understanding that if you leave out for a trash pickup, you have to take the doors off so some inquistive kids don't get in it and suffocate.

You know, I could always leave it by the trash of some apartment complex...it's got mold in it (hence, "nasty") So I don't wanna take the doors off  :D

If they still have freon in them, they do cost a bit to get rid of (and of course there are big fines for dumping them.)

Taking the door off makes them a lot lighter and easier to move too.
