Recycling Old Sofas

Archived Q&A and Reviews


I have an old, heavy couch and some odds and ends of furniture pieces, none of which are very good or in good shape, and I need to get them out of the house so I can bring in some new pieces. Is there anyone who will haul away old furniture? I live in Richmond and Goodwill won't pick up in that part of the world. (One wonders why not...) Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted.

We've had a good experience with Bay Area Rescue Mission (used to be Richmond Rescue Mission). They will take anything that someone else can use (i.e. not broken or totally trashed) and will pick up furniture. Their web site is at and the phone number is (510)215-4555. Cathy
