How to Get Rid of a Glass Coffee Table
Glass coffee tables are both beautiful and functional, but sometimes their longevity comes to an end. If you need to get rid of a glass coffee table, you have several options to consider.
Reuse or Recycle
The first suggestion when dealing with any kind of waste, is to see if you can reuse or recycle. If your glass coffee table is still in good condition, then you can consider donating it to an organization or a charity shop. If it cannot be reused, then you can contact specialized companies who can recycle it properly.
Throw it Out
If you cannot find a way to reuse or recycle the glass coffee table, then you can consider throwing it out. Before doing that, make sure you wrap it up in several layers of bubble wrap, to protect yourself and other people from injury. You may also be able to go to a glass shop and purchase a ‘glass-pack’, which is essentially a box you can use to transport broken glass safely.
- Be aware of your local laws. Local laws often govern how you should dispose of waste and items like glass coffee tables. Make sure you check your local regulations prior to disposing of the item.
- Don’t try to do it alone. Moving and disposing of glass is a dangerous task. Make sure you have help from a minimum of two people when transporting the table and disposing of it.
- Declutter responsibly. Glass tables are often very heavy, so make sure you plan carefully how you will get rid of it. Remember to act responsibly and keep your neighbors and the environment in mind.
Glass coffee tables add an elegant touch to any home. But if your table is worn out or in bad condition, then it is time to get rid of it. Follow these tips to dispose of your glass coffee table safely and responsibly.
