Baby furniture disposal options aren’t exactly plentiful. In fact, there are only a few realistic choices. When it’s time to move on and unload old baby furniture, you’ll quickly discover this is a difficult task to pull off. But why? What’s so bad about used baby furniture. Well, that’s what we’ll take a quick look at, along with how to get rid of baby furniture, with a few alternatives.
Baby Furniture Disposal Obstacles
Okay, 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.com
Those 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 used baby furniture. After all, would you buy used furniture for your own child? Putting it in this light makes a whole lot of sense.

But, all this doesn’t mean you’ll have to resort to dumping it off in some vacant lot in the dead of night. You don’t want to risk being caught for illegal dumping and besides, you have better things to do. Here’s a few suggestions you can use as baby furniture disposal options:
- 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.)
- Donate it. You can also choose to donate it to a local church or woman’s shelter. Here again, you’ll have to first determine if it ever appears on a recall list. But, if it doesn’t, you can donate it and gain a small tax deduction.
- Sell it. Of course, if it’s in good condition, you can always try to sell it. Price it inexpensively so it sells quickly and you’ll have a little more to put toward the purchase of new furniture.
- Give it away. Another option is to simply give it away to someone you know or friends and family know needs it.
