How to Dispose of Furniture
What to Do With Furniture You Don’t Want
Due to the bulkiness of most items, getting rid of furniture can be a challenge. Whether you’re moving, downsizing to a smaller home or simply swapping out your current stuff with more up-to-date furnishings, the process can be tricky. There are a number of disposal options, and which one is best for you will depend on the condition of your furniture and how much you have on hand.
How to Get Rid of Old Furniture
Donate Your Furniture to Charity
If you’re looking to get rid of furniture that is free of rips, stains, odors and doesn’t need any repairs, consider donating it to someone in need. Furniture in good condition can be donated to charities such as:
- Goodwill: Requires you to drop off items.
- Salvation Army: Offers both drop-off and pickup options.
- Habitat for Humanity ReStores: Offer pickup services.
- Local Furniture Banks: Most offer pickup services.
- Local Shelters: Typically require you to drop off items.
Be sure to call your chosen charity ahead of time to make sure they need what you’re getting rid of.
Rent a Dumpster
A roll off dumpster is a quick solution for getting rid of furniture and other junk you no longer need. We offer a wide range of containers that can hold tons of debris at a time, making this a good option for anyone who’s short on time or has lots of furniture to dispose of.
Hire a Junk Removal Service
A junk hauling service provides the labor for you making this a good option if you need to get rid of items that would be hard to move on your own. However, these companies charge by the hour and the number of trips needed, so they may not be best for large quantities of furniture.
Throw It Out on the Curb
Curbside collection is great if you only have a few small items to get rid of. Keep in mind that most residential curbside collection services have rules for the placement of these items so they can be collected efficiently. Be sure to check your local regulations for best practices.
