Is it normal/acceptable to place furniture you cannot sell on your curb with a “free” sign?

It depends on your local ordinances.

In many communities there are ordinances that forbid placing items for sale on public property without a permit.

Usually, however, this type of violation will only result in a warning or a small fine if the furniture is left on the curb for more than a day or two.

If the furniture is in good shape, there are usually charitable organizations who will pick it up and give you a donation receipt that can be used for a tax deduction.
