The Ultimate Guide to Wardrobe Disposal in Singapore


Welcome to The Ultimate Guide to Wardrobe Disposal in Singapore! If you’re wondering how to bid farewell to your old wardrobe, including large chests, dressers, cabinets, and chests of drawers, you’re in the right place. Before we embark on the journey of dismantling and disposing of your furniture, let’s ensure you’re equipped with the knowledge to make the process smooth and environmentally friendly.

But here’s the deal: you definitely don’t want to risk a hefty fine for illegally dumping furniture. According to The National Environment Agency (NEA), illegally dumping waste in a public place is no joke – it causes pollution, public health hazards, and could land you with a maximum fine of $50,000, up to 12 months’ jail, or both. So let’s do this the right way, shall we? 

Step 1: Assess your Wardrobe

Before you jump into the fun of dismantling your wardrobe, let’s start with a quick assessment. Assess the condition of your furniture and decide if it’s fit for donation, recycling, or disposal. In Singapore, we have plenty of options for each scenario. 

Step 2: Dismantle the Wardrobe

Now that you’ve assessed your wardrobe, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and start dismantling. Using appropriate tools such as screwdrivers, wrenchers, and hammers, carefully disassemble the wardrobe into manageable pieces. Remove drawers, shelves, doors, and unscrew any fixtures or hardwares like knobs, handles, and or hinges. 

For larger items like dressers or cabinets, consider removing the back panels or dividing them into smaller sections for easier handling. 

Remember, safety first! Wear protective gear like gloves and goggles, especially when handling sharp objects or heavy materials. Take care not to force any parts and follow manufacturer instructions if available.

Step 3: Sort & Separate Materials

Once your wardrobe is dismantled, it’s time to sort and separate the materials. Group similar materials together, such as wood, metal, and plastic and check for any recyclable or reusable parts. Be sure to dispose of any hazardous materials, such as glass. 

Step 4: Dispose Responsibly

When it comes to disposing of your wardrobe responsibly, there are 2 convenient options that prioritise sustainability and environmental consciousness. 

  • Option A: DIY Responsible Disposal

Take charge of your wardrobe disposal by bringing recyclable materials to the appropriate facility and disposing of unusable parts. If you prefer a more community-oriented approach, consider participating in Tzu Chi’s Environmental Sustainability Day. Every third Sunday of the month, Tzu Chi transforms various locations into temporary eco points where residents can bring their recyclable items for sorting and recycling. It’s a great opportunity to engage with your community and educate your family about environmental protection.
