How to Get Rid of a Couch

Whether you’re moving, redecorating, or just ready to get rid of your old couch, you have some options to consider. Buying a new couch can be expensive, so making sure you dispose of your old one properly can help you save money. In addition, recycling or donating your sofa helps reduce the amount of waste in landfills.

Many Brooklyn charities and local organizations, like Goodwill and the Salvation Army, accept donated items including sofas. If you want to donate your sofa, check with the organization before you take it apart to make sure they can accept it. You may be able to donate the upholstery and cushions separately, while other parts such as the metal springs can be taken to a scrap yard for recycling.

You can also sell your couch at a garage or yard sale or online through sites such as Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. You can also try to give your couch away locally through a Buy Nothing group in your area. Beware of scammers when selling your couch online.

Another option is to simply place your old couch on the curb with a free sign. This can be a quick, easy, and affordable way to get rid of your old sofa, but it’s important to check with your city or HOA before doing so. If they have rules against placing large items on the curb, you could face a fine. Additionally, your couch may be rained on or exposed to the elements and become damaged or ruined before someone picks it up.
