What to Know about Outdoor Furniture DisposalThe thing about old patio furniture is much like having to deal with any old furniture. Even if it’s in pretty good condition, you may not be able to sell it because of its dated style. In addition, since patio furniture is specifically designed to be outdoors, it’s subjected to the sun, heat, humidity, and inclement weather.
Nothing lasts forever, and this is true of your casual outdoor furniture. Body oil, exposure to the sun, suntan lotion, pool chlorine and bird excrement conspire to slowly destroy your patio furniture. A $250 set of patio furniture from a big-box store probably isn’t worth the time, effort or expense of fixing. Just toss it. However, if your outdoor furniture represents a major investment, is still serviceable and the problem areas are minimal, save some money by having it professionally refurbished — or do it yourself. —Bankrate.comUnfortunately, wear isn’t the only thing that might pose an obstacle, style can also be an issue. What was popular years ago might well be something that’s very unpopular now. At the very least, it could even be the case that condition and style are okay. But, the color or material just isn’t in demand.
Laguna Niguel Outdoor Furniture Disposal OptionsOutdoor furniture disposal takes a bit of extra effort. It’s something that’s difficult simply because of what it is. Fortunately, there are some viable outdoor furniture disposal options you can try:
- Sell it. Place a local online ad and be sure to stipulate the buyer is responsible for taking it. This way, you can put a few dollars in your pocket and get rid of that stuff at the same time.
- Refurbish it. Rinse it off, then clean it with dish soap, rinse again, and let it dry. Now, it will look much better and you can use it somewhere else. You might have a pergola or another space in your yard where you can arrange it.
- Give it away. Another option, if it’s in good and usable condition, is to give it away. Ask around — family, friends, coworkers, and others — to see if there’s any interest. You might find someone who’ll take it off your hands. Or, even someone who’ll give you a little cash. If so, you can use the money to offset the cost of replacement.
- Junk it outright. Of course, you can always just have a local junk removal company haul it away for you.
