Crib Disposal ObstaclesOkay, let’s begin with what seems like a very simple thing to do. You have a child that’s growing out of his or her furniture. It’s time to trade up for something more grown-up. So, you decide you’ll buy this and that as a replacement. Then, you ask if the store that’s delivering it will haul the used items away only to learn that’s not part of the deal. What gives? Well, think about it this way — it’s used and it’s old.
Babies need so much stuff. But what do you do with it all when they outgrow everything? Throwing items away just means they will wind up in a landfill somewhere. So what baby gear can you recycle — and how? Turns out, there are a lot of baby accessories you can and should recycle instead of tossing them in the trash. And there are plenty of ways to recycle safely and easily. —Parents.comThose two characteristics alone make it unwanted. Then, there’s also the possibility it’s on a recall list — previously or presently. With all this in-mind, you can easily see why it’s a challenge to offload a crib. After all, would you buy used crib for your own child? Putting it in this light makes a whole lot of sense.
Dana Point Crib Disposal OptionsIf your crib is still in good condition and it doesn’t appear on any recall list, then you do have some options. Here are a few helpful crib disposal suggestions you can try:
- Sell it. Of course, the first thing that likely comes to mind is to sell it. But, this can really be a serious challenge (for the reasons given above). However, that doesn’t mean it won’t work. You can try to sell it yourself or consign it.
- Donate it. This might or might not be an option, depending on the condition of the baby furniture. Some thrift stores and churches will accept baby furniture as a donation. Although, this isn’t always the case.
- Store it. If you plan on having more children in the future, consider storing it temporarily. (Check to see if it appears on any recall list before you stash it away. Then, check again before using it, when it’s time.)
- Give it away. You just might know someone — a family member, friend, or coworker — who is in need of baby furniture. Make it a win-win scenario and give it away to a good home.
