I would donate it to one of the charities and let them come and get it. It may be an old ratty couch. But you never know, someone could put it to use for a pet or something.

I disagree. If something isn't usable and you give it to a charity, you are just forcing them to dispose of it and absorb the dump fee. So, you actually aren't helping people in need and your "gift" may resort in less funds for the organizations mission. Places that sell items can't and won't sell things that people like us won't buy. And why do you think people in need would/should accept dirty, smelly furniture for their children to sit on? If you have something that is in good shape (ie you would give it to your neice for her first apartment) then by all means donate it. Google "junk for jesusn haiti" if you want to see a bunch of examples of this and explore this issue.
