3 Ways To Properly Dispose Of Furniture

It’s inevitable. At some point you WILL have to let go of that dreadful green chair you’ve been hanging onto since college. And the broken down old couch that’s been taking up space in your garage. And the mattresses the kids outgrew years ago. So what are you supposed to do when this stuff obviously doesn’t fit in a trash bin and it’s not in good enough shape to be donated?

Here are 3 ways to dispose of furniture legally and safely

  • Rent a roll-off dumpster and let the professionals handle it
  • Haul it to your landfill yourself
  • Leave it on the curb for the next person

Rent A Roll-Off Dumpster

When it comes to safely and conveniently disposing of old furniture, the most convenient and hassle free option by far is to rent a roll-off dumpster from a dumpster rental service near you. Dumpster rental is convenient, easy and hassle-free, leaving you just the work of hauling your old furniture out of your home, attic or garage and placing it in the dumpster. 

Rental companies will drop off and pick up the dumpster and you don’t even necessarily have to be home for either to happen! Once you receive your dumpster all you have to do is load it up and alert your servicer that it’s ready to be picked up. Before you know it, the furniture you avoided dealing with for so long will be out of your hair and you can start making plans for your clean, new space!

Haul It To Your Local Landfill

When you haul furniture to your local landfill it should ultimately end up in the same spot that it would have if you used a dumpster rental service. The difference is that when you haul furniture yourself, you’ll have to pay up front for dumping fees and gas to make however many trips it takes, not to mention the time you’ll spend driving your vehicle back and forth to the landfill. 

A professional dumping service will take the stress off your hands by handling the drop off and pick up, and doing the work of sorting through your furniture. They will determine what can actually go to the landfill and what will have to be disposed of by other means, since not all furniture is able to go straight to the landfill. 

Leave It On The Curb 

What might seem like the most convenient option could easily turn into a headache for you. Leaving furniture on the curb might be legal in your city, but even if it is, it does pose the possibility of strangers hanging around your property. If your furniture happens to get snagged immediately, great! It saves you the hassle of having to make other arrangements for your furniture, but if your old furniture is left to sit out, it can quickly mildew and even become a haven for pests to make their homes. 

Leaving furniture on the curb could be convenient if it’s just a small table or a chair that isn’t made with fabric, but when you have multiple pieces of furniture to get rid of, the last thing you want to do is set up shop in front of your house and invite pests to come burrow into your furniture, guaranteeing no one else will want to scoop it up.
