There are times when almost everyone needs furniture disposal. And most of those times they will need some help hauling it and knowing where to take it.
What most people tend to do, however, is take it all to a landfill to dump it. But if old furniture can't be reused it can still be recycled. And we can help with that!
When Your Junk Can't Be Reused
Old furniture is a challenging category of junk. Almost no one wants to just throw it away or see it broken up. This is especially true if it's a well-worn but well-loved piece that's been a part of the family for many years.
And, while most of us would much rather see our old furniture items go to a good home and find a new life elsewhere, sometimes the pieces are just beyond repair or refurbishing. They have become officially "junk."
Old couches with cracked or torn coverings, broken springs, or worn out seat cushions are only good for disposal, for example. And wooden furniture pieces such as dining room tables and chairs can be damaged and broken to the point where repairs are not practical.
But, does this mean these items all must end up in a landfill somewhere, taking up space?
No, it does not.
When your old furniture can't be reused that's when furniture disposal should become furniture recycling. That's right - old furniture can be recycled. While the process may involve breaking down larger pieces and some disassembly, most, if not all, the materials that go into furniture is recyclable.
To that end, we've put together this handy guide to recycling old furniture.
Recycling Old Furniture Isn't a DIY Project
Okay, so maybe you can do it yourself. But do you really want to?
Furniture is heavy. It's bulky. And it's hard to maneuver through rooms, doorways, halls, and down stairwells. That means it's a difficult and possibly even dangerous task for most people.
And, for some of us, it's just a job we don't want to do even if we could.
Then there's the hauling part of the task. That means having a vehicle large enough to carry your old furniture, and that usually means having a truck, which usually means borrowing one or renting one.
And you still have to do all the heavy lifting, except that you have to do it three times: once in the house, once into the truck, and one more time out of the truck.
And to where?
Taking it all to your local landfill or waste transfer station can be a chore in itself. And it costs money and is not an environmentally friendly option. And you still have to do all the work. But there is a better option.

Once you decide to have someone else come and take away that old furniture for you, the next step is to decide which company is the best one for the job.
Keep in mind that many junk removal companies simply haul everything they pick up to a local landfill. Not Junk King!
