The Need for Furniture Disposal Seattle
Furniture can be cumbersome and frustrating to transport, simply because most furniture items don’t fit well in regular cars. What’s more, most furniture items are located in central locations in homes and offices, away from exits and are definitely not easy to lift either. For most people, proper disposal of furniture is a hassle.
Some people even resort to pushing out their furniture to the curb, in hopes that it will be picked up by the trash collector. But this just makes the neighborhood look unkempt. In most cases, the furniture will remain on the curb for more than a day. Truth be told, leaving a sofa on the curb with a ‘take me’ sign isn’t a proper way of disposing it. And all it takes to ruin that plan is a passing dog or a light drizzle.
There is a better way of disposing your furniture – calling Junk B Gone. Simply call us to avail our furniture hauling services and we’ll do the rest for you.

Where Can I Donate Furniture in Seattle
There are always charities ready to accept furniture. Check charities in your localities to see if they accept furniture items as donations. If they do, great! Now you’ll just have to transport your furniture, which carries lots of complications. Firstly, you’ll have to haul it out of your property, which definitely isn’t easy if you’re dealing with heavy furniture. Secondly, you’ll need a truck or a suitable vehicle which will accommodate the furniture without damaging it.
If this sounds too much, we’re happy to help! At Junk B Gone, we have a commitment to serve the community, so you can always call Junk B Gone to haul your furniture and drop it off at a local charity.
Can I Simply Get Rid of Furniture by Placing it on the Curb?
This can be a rather tricky solution to getting rid of unwanted furniture. You’ll have to haul potentially heavy items by yourself, which presents its own set of complications. But before you do any heavy lifting, it’s best to check local regulations and guidelines on what types of items can be left on the curb. If your item disrupts a sidewalk or traffic, you’re going to get fined for it by the city. If you live in an apartment, you’ll need to check with your strata manager whether this is an allowed practice as well. All this aside however, hauling furniture is a laborious job that can take a lot of time and effort, with risk of injury on top.
Keeping all this in mind, why not let Junk B Gone’s professional crew handle this? Our crew will come equipped to carry any kind of furniture you might have, even down stairs. We strive to recycle or donate as much as we can, so your junk doesn’t affect the environment.
Recycling – A Benefit of Proper Furniture Disposal
When you get rid of your old furniture by throwing it in the trash, there’s an environmental cost associated with it. You might not know it, but there are environmentally harmful chemicals used in furniture made of treated wood. If this furniture ends up in a landfill, these chemicals can seep into the soil and water of surrounding areas. There could also be plastic or other components in the furniture which do not break down naturally, and will sit in landfills for years.
When you choose to consciously recycle furniture, it ensures that the furniture’s components such as wood, plastic, metal, foam or fabric get turned into something new. This is of huge benefit to the environment, as we’re not straining it with chemicals nor using it unnecessarily for resources for creation of new materials
So how do you ensure your furniture is disposed in a proper manner? Simply call Junk B Gone and we’ll do the rest. Not only will we do the lifting and transportation, but we’ll also ensure that it gets donated, recycled or disposed of properly.
What Kinds of Furniture Can be Recycled?
When it comes to wood furniture, there are a lot of considerations to be made before recycling. Most furniture is made of treated wood, which means it has probably been exposed to chemical processes such as staining, painting or varnishing. This kind of wood is hard to recycle, as the wood treatment products used on it render it unusable for typical recycling by-products.
Untreated wood furniture on the other hand can be recycled. For treated wood, the ideal thing to do would be to find a way to reuse it. If that’s not possible or if you just want to get rid of it, call Junk B Gone, furniture disposal experts. We have a commitment to keep as many items as we can out of the landfill, so we try our best to find ways of recycling furniture or donating it. If it can’t be used for either purpose, we’ll make sure it gets disposed of responsibly with the least environmental impact possible.
What You Need to Know Before Hauling Furniture Yourself
The biggest impediment you’ll face when removing furniture is its weight – you’ll definitely need another person to carry most pieces of furniture. Lighter items such as chairs are easier to move, but even these carry risks if you have stairs to deal with.
Instead of dealing with heavy furniture pieces yourself, you can always get help from Junk B Gone’s expert furniture removal crew. Our crew is trained to handle heavy furniture, and that includes carrying it down multiple flights of stairs. Simply call Junk B Gone and we’ll take care of the rest.
Other Options for Furniture Disposal
It’s always a good idea to check with your city’s relevant department and see if they offer free pick up for heavy/large items. This will vary by location. You can also get rid of furniture by simply putting it up for sale or giving it away for free. If none of this is possible, you’ll have to trash it yourself. This can be possible if you have a truck that can carry large pieces of furniture.
However, please note that this is always going to be a time-consuming process, and you’ll need to set aside the better part of a day. Save yourself time and hassle and hire Junk B Gone for old furniture disposal. Apart from lifting your phone to call us, you won’t have to move a muscle to get rid of your junk. We’ll come and take it, no matter how heavy it is. Our crew will inspect the furniture and if it’s in serviceable shape, will drop it off at a charity center.
Disposal of Furniture When Moving Offices
Naturally, offices contain a large amount of furniture and it can be quite a chore to move all of it. Instead, a better option is to simply take inventory of everything and mark the things you don’t need to take with you. The marked items can either be listed for selling, given away to employees if they’re willing to haul them or donated to charity. The local scrap yard also might be interested in some of the items.
In the event that an employee wants the items, bear in mind that moving a lot of furniture without professional help can be a cumbersome process. There’s also risk of injury if the employee decides to haul it themselves, which can leave them unable to work, affecting your company’s operations. The best option when moving offices is to contact Junk B Gone, professionals at hauling away stuff you don’t need. We do our jobs with extreme efficiency to ensure none of your valuable time is wasted and transfer of furniture to the new office happens on schedule.
