Instructions

If in good shape, sell or donate. There are multiple businesses that accept used furniture in good condition, such as thrift stores & materials for reuse. If not, the City of Berkeley offers 1 Bulky Waste Pick-up per calendar year for single-family homes and multi-unit residential buildings up to 4 units.

Alternatives

In general, buy less furniture. Prioritize quality over quantity and buy second-hand instead of new, if possible.

Facts

Have you seen furniture left at curbside for extended periods of time expecting someone else to pick it up? This may be considered illegal dumping and can be penalized by a fine.
