The couch in your living room may be a staple of the home, but it can also be a hassle to haul away. Not only are couches heavy and bulky, they’re often expensive and hard to get rid of. If you’ve decided that it’s time for a change, don’t worry! We’ll show you how to dispose of an old couch quickly and easily with these easy tips.
According to the Home of Cozy website, most couches weight between 280-350 pounds. The average homeowner or renter would be hard pressed to lift this much weight alone and it is unlikely that they could fit a couch in their car let alone an SUV. This job is for trucks.
But what if you don’t have one?
No worries. You can always borrow, rent, or figure out another way to take care of your couch disposal task!
Take My Couch… Please!
For those with a tight budget, finding someone who is willing and able to take your old couch without dinging up the walls of your home or charging you an arm and a leg for the service can be challenging. Which means that not just any junk removal guy will do. Sure, you can certainly find some guy with a truck willing to do the job but choosing that option may end up costing more than anticipated saving!
Junk Removal Chicago is the best choice for residential junk removal. Our professional staff can handle anything from a single small item to an entire home, and everything in between! In addition to being insured, reliable, and knowledgeable about all types of disposals methods—we’re also environmentally conscious so you know we’ll take care of your waste as if it was our own.
If you have an old, ugly couch that needs to be disposed of and can’t bear the thought of it ending up in a landfill or being incinerated then there’s good news. Believe it or not most materials your sofa is made from are recyclable with just one exception: the foam padding on cushions.
“Cushions are not something you can recycle in your regular recycling bin. They’re usually toxic and difficult to repurpose, which is why it’s a relief that some of them can be recycled with polyurethane foam.”
The bottom line is that your old couch can still find a new life, even if it cannot be sold or given away to a local non-profit.
