If furniture is not suitable for reuse, you can haul it to the landfill or contact a company to haul it to the landfill for you. Trash companies and other companies will provide this service for a fee.

Never place furniture in dumpsters. Using a dumpster that you do not pay for is illegal. Even if you live in an apartment complex with a dumpster, do not dispose of furniture in the dumpster.
