What to KnowIt’s important to note, not all baby furniture is a candidate for continued use. Some furniture makes its way onto recall lists. And, it really doesn’t matter if it’s a past or present list. In either case, that furniture is tainted and regarded as unsafe for continued use. At least, that’s the way everyone will treat it, even if the manufacturer issued new items without noted defects.
If your child has outgrown her baby crib, you may have found it’s a tough piece of furniture to dispose of. Even thrift stores don’t accept older cribs, because in 2011 federal safety regulations changed, making it illegal to sell models now considered substandard. Rather than storing your crib or throwing it away, why not try committing it to a new purpose? —Bob VilaSo, that makes junking it the only feasible option. What’s more, you’ll have to consider style and function. For example, you might have a really nice baby bed or crib. But, that’s all that it is and it does not convert into anything else. With so many choices available that convert into a toddler bed, daybed, and a full, that’s a big strike.
Infant Furniture Disposal Options in Fort MyersIf the furniture is still in good condition and it doesn’t appear on any recall list, then you do have some options. Here are a few helpful infant furniture disposal suggestions you can try:
- Sell it. One good thing is there are always new parents or soon-to-be parents out there. And, some are pinching every penny. That’s great news for you because it means there’s a market. So, go with a local, online ad and price it cheap to get it sold quickly.
- Donate it. Of course, if it’s in good, usable condition, there’s also the charity route. You can donate it to a local church or other charitable organization and get a small tax write-off.
- Give it away. You just might know someone — a family member, friend, or coworker — who is in need of baby furniture. Make it a win-win scenario and give it away to a good home.
- Store it for future use. Even if you aren’t outright planning for another child but there’s still a possibility, you might consider holding onto it. Just store it safely away to use when it’s time again.
