 Furniture that is broken, torn, soiled, or unsafe – if you can do this within a week of discarding it, take it apart and recycle what you can – if you can’t do this, then see if your local CMHA would like it for the parts, if not – you must throw it in the garbage.  NOTE:  Never burn wood from old furniture unless you know for sure that the wood hasn’t been treated – fumes from burning treated wood have been known to kill people or cause serious respiratory issues.
