    • How to get rid of old furniture – 4 ways

1. Donating it

This is an option you can take advantage of, but only if your furniture is in good condition. There are plenty of charities, community organisations and people online that would happy come to your home and pick up any unwanted furniture items at no extra cost. However, the larger something is or the older and more damaged something is the harder it can be to offload to someone else. Luckily, there are three more options if this tactic isn’t going to work for you.

2. Selling it

This is one of the most popular solutions, especially for people who have items that are still in good condition and were expensive to begin with. With websites and phone apps such as Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist, this option is almost as easy as throwing it away. Plus, you will earn yourself a little cash on the side!

There are multiple options to explore when you’re looking to sell your old furniture.

3. Repurposing it

In this modern era more and more people are becoming handier with their belongings and finding clever new uses for their old furniture. There are a wide range of unique ways you can repurpose the furniture you no longer need, from turning old tables into kitchen islands and coffee tables into benches to cabinet bars and more! Repurposing is also a great option for those who are feeling crafty or think they can make something worth selling online. Who knows, maybe your old leather chair will be the next modern art installation!

4. Throwing it away

For those just wanting to get rid of their junk so they don’t have to worry about it anymore, it is also the least stressful solution. However throwing your old furniture into landfill will impact global warming, as decomposing organic waste releases toxic gas. Sometimes old furniture is just old furniture and it just isn’t worth holding on to or selling to someone who won’t be able to use it for long because it’s so worn in already.

5. Hire a skip bin
