Scrapping ikea bed

To my surprise they don't last forever.... does anyone know where I would dump the wood from an Ikea bed as we are leaving and it is a bit bashed up? I'm guessing the cost of going to a local recycling dump is prohibitive at CHF 2.5 per kg. Probably about the cost of buying the damned thing.... any suggestions? We don't live in Zurich / have the stickers for the Hagenholz place, although I can drive up there.

Is it too banged up to be usable at all? Give it away for free on EF? Donate it?

Most furniture stores will pick up the old stuff when delivering the new. So if you're getting a new bed, make sure to tell the store you have an old one to be picked up when they're at it. It is important to make this clear beforehand (with the salesman) as the truck driver cannot spontaneously load extra junk that you choose to shove onto him.

Ikea actually take their own stuff back.

Phone and ask to be sure.

Re: Scrapping ikea bed

Think I will take up the Ikea idea (nice alliteration). It is usable as my aunt just stayed over, but we are heading out of Switzerland and need to get rid of the frame. Keeping the mattress / slats, but some of the side panels have broken. Don't think anyone would be a taker to be honest or else would give it away.

Re: Scrapping ikea bed

I found that too, but thanks for posting it. I should have been more community-minded like you.
