Chests of drawers are furniture and considered a bulky item for disposal.
Furniture at the end of its useful life can often be recycled, especially items made from wood and metal.
Some furniture can be recycled at your local civic amenity site, check the Waste Services Locator on this site for additional information.
Some local authorities may also provide a bulky goods collection service for a fee.
Also check out up cycling projects that welcome donations of furniture, some of which are listed on www.crni.ie
If you have a piece of furniture that is still usable, you could consider selling it, passing it on to someone else or donating it – some charity shops accept furniture for resale. There are also furniture up cycling projects that welcome donations check out www.crni.ie.
