Default Where can I dump/recycle old furnature in Houston

I have tried to donate it, but they won't take it. The condition is too bad they say.

So where can I get dump it. Any local dump sites? I don't mind paying.

I prefer not to use companies that charge you 200+ to throw away stuff for you.

Option A: Take pictures of it and put it in the "free" section of Craigslist. I was rid of an old couch in terrible condition this last summer within a few hours.

Option B: There is a landfill off of Greenhouse if you are close to Katy. They charge around 40 bucks a load to leave your stuff. I can not remember the name of it at the moment.

Default Funny...

You mean you cannot dump it off in one of the many ditches around the suburbs? I've seen TVs, mattresses, dishwashers, even once a refridgerator!

Just kidding about dumping it, but not about what I've seen!

If you live in the City of Houston, they have several drop points for heavy waste like furniture. Call 311 to find out where they are.

You don't have bulk, large item pickup? I thought even COH took Refrigerators away.I would call and ask. If you have BFI or Waste Management (not the claw truck crew) they take things like that once a month, you just need to call and notify them.

Waste Management was our service provider and we just put the stuff on the curb, and they picked it up. We threw away all kinds of things including dishwashers and furniture, and they did it with the normal trash pickup. Relatives in COH service area, just put it out on the curb, and before the garbage collection trucks can get there, people trolling the neighborhoods take everything thats not tied down. When they were remodeling their house it became a game for us. Let's see what kind of junk we can put out and fast someone will take it away.

We dumped a couple old recliners at a yard near 610/225/Lawndale. It was a COH site.
