Many charities schedule free pick-up of donated furniture. However, charities and other organizations usually only accept furniture when it is still in good condition.
Furniture that is badly damaged, soiled, torn or broken should be disposed of through other means. If the furniture is in good condition, however, charities like Goodwill and the Salvation Army can pick it up from a residence or business. The Salvation Army, for example, accepts numerous types of furniture for donation, including beds, mattresses, couches, chairs, tables and desks.
Consumers can contact local branches of charities like Salvation Army and Goodwill directly to schedule pick ups or drop offs. Alternatively, they can ask about already-scheduled pick ups in the area.
