Remember the old sofa or that sad looking recliner you saw in the vacant lot near your house? Don't be like that guy! Know how to dump furniture properly.
Of course, you would never do that. But it's pretty apparent that some people do. And they dump old chairs, mattresses and other furniture items in places where they can be a hazard as well as an eyesore.
And someone else has to go and clean it up eventually.
