Default Get rid of bulky furnitures

How (or where to go) to get rid of large (but in great condition) furnitures in Sydney area? eg. Three seater sofa, bookshelves. Any charity that would come over to collect them? Sell? Thanks.

Your council will collect "bulky rubbish" if you call them to organise a special pickup.

You can try selling it on Gumtree or eBay.

But if you just want it gone - put it on the pavement with a sign saying "FREE". (Make sure it's not about to rain - otherwise it will ruin the stuff, no-one will take it and it'll sit rotting outside your door until the council collect it, and you might get a fine in the meantime).
