Furniture Amnesty Day

Furniture Amnesty Day is an annual event that allows local residents to donate furniture they no longer need so others can select from the donated goods for free. The next event will take place on Friday, July 27, 2018 (the last Friday in July) from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Event Flyer (PDF)

Unacceptable furniture and appliances


This program is intended to provide a free way for you to dispose of unwanted furniture. If you leave it on the curb, it could be considered a nuisance by our Code Services department. Local trash companies generally will not pick up furniture on their regular routes.
