Old couchSo, you’ve decided it’s time to say goodbye to that old couch that’s been a faithful companion through countless movie marathons and cozy evenings. But before you roll your old couch to the curb for disposal, consider these unique and eco-friendly ways to say goodbye to your beloved sofa.

Know Your Local Rules and Regulations

Start by acquainting yourself with your city’s pickup guidelines. Different places have varying rules for disposing of large items, so it’s wise to check to see if your municipality even offers scheduled pickups or specific days for large item disposal.

Contact Your Waste Management Facility

Reach out to your local waste management facility. Some may accept furniture for disposal, albeit with fees or special pickup arrangements. Remember to bring identification and proof of residency if required. If you need help getting it to the local facility, we can help with that. Hauling old furniture for disposal is one of the things we do. If it’s in good condition it may be donatable to a local charity. If not, we can haul it to the local dump for you.

Furniture Recycling

If you’re looking for assistance with the heavy lifting, you can always contact us at 604-329-9981. We specialize in furniture recycling and disposal.

Donate It

Your old couch could still bring comfort to others. Reach out to local charitable organizations like the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity or local thrift stores to see if they accept couch donations. Please note that not all locations may take larger furniture items.

Pay It Forward

Spread the love by giving your sofa away for free. Online classifieds and social media platforms can help you connect with people who may be interested in taking it off your hands.

Upholstery Cleaning

If your couch is still in good condition but just needs a good cleaning, consider hiring a professional upholstery cleaner. They can work their magic, making your couch look and feel like new again. Plus, a clean couch may fetch a better price if you decide to sell it.

Yard or Garage Sale

Declutter your home while making some extra cash by organizing a yard or garage sale. Include your old couch in the mix, and don’t forget to invite your neighbours for a joint sale to attract more buyers.

Rent a Dumpster

For a thorough decluttering, including your couch, consider renting a dumpster. These come in various sizes and can be conveniently placed on your property. It’s a time-efficient option, but it can be a bit pricey.

Repurpose and Upcycle

Let your creativity flow by repurposing your old couch into something new and exciting. Whether you disassemble it to craft new furniture or embark on a unique art project, the possibilities are endless.

Sell It Online

If your couch is still in good shape, try selling it online through platforms like Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, or eBay. Posting high-quality photos and offering pickup (or delivery for an extra fee) can help attract potential buyers.

Trade It In

Some furniture sellers offer to take your old sofa when you purchase a new one from them. This could be in the form of a credit towards your new purchase or simply as an incentive to choose their products. It’s worth inquiring about when shopping for new furniture.
