Disposal Options


At Gustafson’s we would like to provide resources for our customers in order to properly dispose of any old furniture or mattresses. Due to the fact that our delivery area spans nearly 100 miles from our store, we have tried to compile as many resources as possible.  

For disposal needs, please reach out to your local waste management service. Below we have a list of Rockford Area services, their policies as of March 2020, as well as contact details. 

For all donation questions, please contact each charitable location prior to bringing your furniture items to their location to confirm acceptable donation requirements.
