Most city and county dumps take old furniture; however, they may specify that furniture is only accepted at certain locations. To find out where furniture is accepted, call the city or county waste disposal department nearest to you to confirm where large items are accepted.
Some city and county dumps may charge a small fee for the disposal of large pieces of furniture. If furniture is in usable condition, consider donating it to a nonprofit organization or thrift store. Donations are often tax-deductible, and those disposing of furniture can save money over landfill fees if they are subject to them.
