If you’ve recently upgraded to a brand new couch, redecorated, or simply remodeling, chances are you need to dump the old furniture to make room for the new.
But how do you dispose of old furniture? While some cities have pre-determined dates for large trash pickups, you don’t want your furniture sitting on the curb for your neighbors to enjoy. Below are a few options for furniture disposal and removal.
There are a number of organizations in the Park City area that will accept furniture donations. If you do choose to donate, you may be eligible for tax deductions. You can check out the IRS website for charitable contributions, eligibility, and limitations

If your old furniture is still in good condition (and even if it's not) you may want to consider selling it online. Even if you only get a few hundred dollars for that old couch, it's money in your pocket. Plus, you might make a young college kid happy by helping them furnish their apartment and save a few bucks.
Here are a few places you can sell your old furniture online:
If you’ve got your own truck or trailer, taking your old furniture to the dump yourself is a reasonable option. Most landfills in Salt Lake City and Park City charge by the ton. For landfill fees at Three Mile Canyon Landfill and Henefer Landfill in Park City, you can visit our resources page. Both landfills charge about $35/ton for household waste and $18 for mattress disposal.
If you’re not up for the task of selling your furniture online, calling a local junk hauling company is another option. The benefits of calling a junk hauler are quick turnaround times and reasonably priced services.

Finally, if you have old furniture you’re looking to dispose of amongst other items you may have discarded during a move or home renovation, a temporary dumpster rental may be the best choice for you. While the cost of renting a dumpster can cover a wide range from $200-$800 depending on the size and amount of junk you have, it can save you (or your junk haulers) tons of time and trips to the landfill.
Most dumpster rental companies offer multiple sizes. Depending on the type of furniture you have you may want to consider renting a 10-yard, 20-yard, or even 40-yard dumpster.
With a variety of options to help you dump that old furniture, you shouldn’t worry about it lingering around the house for months while you decide how you’ll get rid of it.
If you want to recoup some of the costs for the furniture when you initially purchased it, sell it online on a site like Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. If you just want to get rid of it now, consider hiring a local junk hauler.
