How To Dispose of Furniture: Make a Plan

How To Dispose of Furniture: Make a Plan

Here at Lakeshore Recycling Systems, we can handle most of your waste disposal or recycling needs. Unfortunately, the same rules don’t govern every type of object or material. That’s why you can count on our expertise regarding the best way to dispose of certain things.

As you declutter your home or office, figuring out what to do with furniture could be tough since it can take up a lot of space and it can be hard to decide the best method for getting rid of it. What’s the eco-friendliest way to get rid of it? Can it be recycled? If it’s in good condition you can sell it or donate it, but what if there’s no nearby place to drop it off? What if you don’t want to go through the hassle of listing it for sale and not being able to get rid of it right away? We understand all these issues, and we can help you figure out the best solution.

Throw It Away

If you’re doing a larger cleanup of your home or office, one of our waste services can help. We have roll-off containers in a variety of sizes and many of them can accommodate furniture. If you’re going through a small remodel or a larger office overhaul, these containers can help you get rid of the things that you no longer need. We’re one of the largest providers of roll-off operations in the Chicagoland area and you can rely on us 24 hours a day.

We can also help you with bulk pickups. If you have a lot of furniture to get rid of, our Chicago waste removal experts can come to your home or office to remove couches and other furniture. Contact us at (773) 685-8811 to schedule a pickup today.

Recycle It

If you or your company have ambitious sustainability goals, you may want to recycle whatever you can. Naturally, that applies to furniture as well. Many types of furniture can be recycled. We take every step possible to find ways to recycle everything that comes through our facilities, since we do not own a landfill.

Wood furniture can potentially be recycled into paper products. Furniture with metal or plastic components can also find a new life. This is the perfect way to get rid of furniture that might be too damaged to donate or sell. Our recycling facilities can help you get rid of your old furniture, environmentally.

Store It

If you don’t need to get rid of furniture right away or you’re just trying to declutter temporarily, you could store the furniture instead of throwing it out or recycling it. Many people utilize temporary storage facilities to store items until they can determine exactly what they want to do with them.

No matter what you want to do with your old furniture, the local waste removal experts at Lakeshore Recycling Systems are ready to assist you!  We have been helping residents and business owners throughout Chicagoland with all of their waste removal, recycling and construction services needs for 20 years. Contact us at (630) 377-7000 to learn more.
