How can I get rid of unwanted furniture?

Hi everyone:

Sorry--this has probably been asked before! I will be moving in about three months and I'm wondering how to get rid of old furniture.

I have an old desk and chair, probably too old to be wanted by a second-hand store or anyone else.

Any ideas would be very welcome! Thanks.

Just "too old" or "unusable and broken"? Have you actually asked a Brocki/Brockenhaus/Brockenstube or is that just your guess?

Depending on where you live, you can:
- wait for the next Sperrgut-/Metallabfuhr
- put it outside ("gratis") and hope that someone will pick it up and you won't get fined instead
- bring it to the local garbage dump

Thanks Mott. What is the Sperrgut-/Metallabfuhr?
