Re: Old furniture disposal

If you can store it for a little while longer, I'd suggest you make photos of it, including honest pictures of any damage. Write down all the measurements, and the material out of which it is made. Mention any defects plainly.

Then post an ad on the "free stuff" section of this forum, or on one or better still all of these:
www.fleedoo.ch
www.tutti.ch
www.anibis.ch

including, in the title: FREE / GRATIS
and write it again, in the text.

Specify in the add either "collection only" ("muss abgeholt werden") or
"can be delivered within x km" ("kann innert x km geliefert werden).

If it is in reasonable condition, you might find that a Brockenhaus (second-hand shop, charity shop, op-shop) will take it off you. It is best to take the photos there, and ask in person.

Putting it out in the street may well be - technically - against the by-laws. However, if you choose a non-rainy day, and put it out with a big sign "GRATIS - ZUM MITNEHMEN / FREE ", you might be lucky. That sometimes works happily, and fast. Be ready, however (to be fair, legal and safe) to take it indoors again if no-one collects it. That way, you can avoid being fined, and can protect the item overnight so that it does not become damaged by weather or passing humans and other animals.
