Out With the Old: Your Options For Used Furniture Disposal

by | Jan 5, 2024 | Used Tire Removal

Once your furniture has served its purpose, it doesn’t do much more than take up space in your home. It’s time to unload yourself from those unnecessary burdens and bring some new life into your home. If you’re ready to declutter your house or storage unit, take a look at these options for your used furniture disposal. Your home will feel lighter and brighter in no time.

Leave on the Curb

When it comes to used furniture disposal, leaving items on the curb is a common option you can turn to. This method works well for smaller, everyday items like bedside tables, stools, or dining chairs. However, be cautious with larger items such as sofas, dining tables, or desks, as they may not take them or charge you a fine. Before leaving your used furniture on the curb, check with your local recycling and garbage collection services to understand what’s allowed and what’s not. They may have designated pick-up days for bulkier furniture items or provide a contact number on your city’s website for scheduling pickups.


Giving your used furniture a second life by donating it is not only good for others but also an easy and efficient method of disposal. Local options such as Goodwill or thrift stores are almost always willing to accept donations, you can drop off your used furniture with them, and they take care of the rest. You can also drop off your unwanted furniture to donation centers like Habitat for Humanity ReStores or the National Furniture Bank Association. However, they do require you to call them beforehand so they can check the item’s condition and ensure it’s suitable for reuse. If you’re looking for a cost-effective option and can transport smaller items yourself, this could be a great choice for you. However, for larger pieces, you may need to hire help or rent extra equipment to transport them.


The saying “one man’s trash is another’s treasure” holds true for used furniture. Selling your furniture not only removes clutter from your home but also allows you to make some extra money. There are also many ways you may go about selling your furniture, online or in person. You should note though, that while it’s the most profitable option, if no one is interested, you might have to hold onto your furniture for longer than anticipated.


You can sell furniture through online spaces like Facebook Marketplace, eBay, Offerup, or Craigslist. Bonus: many buyers will come and pick up the furniture themselves if you ask.


If you prefer in-person transactions, you can host a yard sale or estate sale. This is a great option if you’re also discarding more stuff than used furniture. It will get most of the junk off your hands, and you can more easily dispose of whatever is left.

Bring it to the Landfill

For furniture that is severely used, worn, or unsalvageable, bringing it to the landfill might be the best option. While this can be a labor-intensive choice, you have the flexibility to work at your own pace. Try renting a dumpster truck or a U-Haul trailer to make transportation easier or breaking down your furniture beforehand to make it easier to move. Just be careful when moving large amounts of furniture on your own, as overdoing it can cause strain on your muscles.

Call a Junk Removal Service

A hassle-free and efficient solution to used furniture disposal is to call a junk removal service. These services can transport your furniture to the landfill or your chosen donation center. Try contacting some of your well-rated junk removal services in your area and asking for a quote. They can tell you how much it will cost to remove all your unwanted furniture, and you can decide if the price is right for you. This option may cost some money, but it’s a one-time fee, and you can save hours of your valuable time.
