Disassembly Not Required
Most furniture does not need to be disassembled before it’s dropped off. Secure drawers, doors and glass by taping them down. Then you can transport the furniture to the landfill.
Alternative Ways to Recycle
IKEA Buy Back Program
Resell your IKEA furniture for store credit through their Buy Back & Resell program. This program is available to IKEA Family Members and can help give your used furniture a new home and/or use.
Ways to Reduce
Sell or Give Away Unwanted Furniture
It’s easy to sell or give away unwanted furniture. Even if your furniture is in rough shape, it’s likely someone could use it or would be willing to fix it up themselves.
Ways to Reuse
Add a New Coat of Paint
If a piece of furniture looks worn out, consider giving it a makeover, such as reupholstering. Even adding a fresh coat of paint can brighten up any old furniture piece.
Buy Secondhand Furniture
Consider saving a few dollars by purchasing furniture secondhand, but always check to see if the piece of furniture is broken. Also check for mold on the wooden parts of the furniture.
