Furniture disposal FAQs:

How do I get rid of a sofa in Adelaide?:

If it’s a small sofa, you can dispose of it in a skip bin! Otherwise you can contact your local council for hard rubbish collection, or try to sell it on Facebook or Gumtree if it’s in relatively good condition.

What can I do with old wooden furniture?:

If the furniture is relatively small or it can be dismantled into smaller pieces, it can be disposed of in a skip bin. Larger wooden furniture can also be placed in a skip bin, but it cannot exceed the size of the skip or hang over the sides as this is a safety hazard.

How do you dispose of a heavy piece of furniture?:

Depending on its size, you may be able to place it in a skip bin – especially if it can be dismantled into smaller pieces. You may even need to order one of our bigger skip bins to ensure it fits (6m3 or 9m3). If this isn’t an option, you may be able to dispose of it through your council’s hard rubbish collection service.
