Just donate it

If you see that your piece of furniture is fine, but you just want to replace it, it's best to give it to charity. Your old sofa is already boring you, but it would be a real gift for someone!

Disposing of it on a curbside

When we talk about where to dump a couch, this is a popular method, but it’s not always allowed. It is better to check if it is possible in your area, otherwise you risk getting a fine. If you have made it clear that this is allowed, you can safely put your couch by the road with a "free" sign. This is convenient if you have the opportunity to take the couch out of the house and bring it to the curb yourself or with the help of dedicated companies.

Disposing of a couch by recycling

Recycling is a great and environmentally friendly way to do it! It's the best way to get rid of something without harming the environment.

This is not very difficult, but still, not everyone will be able to take a sofa apart, and this is a prerequisite for recycling.
