I have a sofa that I need to get rid of. It smells like dog so I don't think it would qualify for giving to Goodwill. Not sure who would want to put it in their home. Are there any other options for getting rid of something like this? It's a reclining sofa so it's not as easy as throwing it in the back of a truck and trashing it.

Put it on Freecycle. Somebody will want it, trust me.

Or stick it on the side of the road and list it in Craigslist as free....first come, first serve. Someone will come haul it off for you. Maybe wait for some sunny days as you don't want it to be rained on.

People tend to be no-shows more often when you offer something for free. I'd first try putting it on Craigslist (with a picture and saying that it smells like dog), ask for $5 and tell them they have to haul it away. If that doesn't work, then I'd try giving it away.

If you live in Greenville, call the city and then put it on the curb on your trash day and they'll take it to the dump.

I've seen furniture at some of these thrift stores that are disgustingly dirty. I don't know how they can get away with even trying to give it away, much less sell it. You would be surprised what people will take just because it's free.

I thought you could just put it on your porch. Isn't that what you do in SC? Okay, I'm just kidding!

Yea, I'd just sit it out on the curb with a sign 'FREE' and turn around and count to 10.

That's what basically happens in our hood. On trash night, pickup trucks slowly criss-cross our block, scavengers whistling dixie in a contest to get the good junk. There's one truck with three guys (two brothers and a helper), who speak another language - some deeply rural form of English that's barely recognizable.

Those guys will take your stinky couch.
