How to Dispose of Used Furniture

Moving and disposing of used furniture is cumbersome. Figuring out what to do with the furniture is frustrating as you have to search for a buyer, a donation facility that will take it, or figure out how to haul it off to the landfill. Meanwhile that is furniture is likely taking up valuable space in your home.

There are many options available to have the old furniture hauled away for you, but what do these junk removal companies, such as College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving, do with your old furniture? Let’s find out.

Disposing of Used Furniture in Good Condition

Old furniture might have lost its value to you, but it may have considerable value to another person. You can get rid of good quality furniture yourself by selling it through online marketplaces such as Craigs List or Facebook Marketplace or donating the furniture to an organization that will take it. Conversely, you can use a junk removal company like College HUNKS to haul it away for you.

College HUNKS partners with donation centers such as Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity Restore that help distribute used furniture to deserving people. These donation groups sell the furniture at a low, affordable cost to families on a budget. Donating used furniture in good condition can raise the standard of living for lower income families, as purchasing new furniture can be challenging. College HUNKS takes care of all the lifting and hauling for you so you can get back to enjoying your new furniture, sooner. 

Getting Rid of Furniture That Is in Poor Condition

The best solution for used furniture that is in good condition is to donate it. However, not all used furniture is in good enough condition to be donated. In these cases, your options are to recycle or dispose of your old furniture.
It is challenging to recycle furniture because of the synthetic materials and adhesives and dyes used in manufacturing. However, College HUNKS partners with local recyclers to ensure that what can be recycled from your furniture, is recycled.  

Some furniture cannot be donated or recycled. In these cases, the furniture must be disposed of. Our team ensures that your furniture is disposed of responsibly, reducing the strain on our landfills and dumpsites.
