I am in the process of cleaning out the "family home" and have found some old shelves and cupboards made out of particle board. I am not a pack rat and don't need/want all of them for their original intended use. A couple are badly stained or damaged with substances of unknown origin so wouldn't be attractive to donate (plus they are super heavy). Is there anything healthy/safe to do with them or is the best option to burn them to the ground, salt the earth (J/K) and move on?
If im not mistaken, theres formaldehyde in particle board. I have no concerns of using it, but would rather keep it out of the ground. Anne gave good idea. Even roadside with "FREE" sign , give it to a flea marketer so they can sell it, goodwill, etc.
