Getting rid of old furniture. Location: Twin Cities, Minnesota.

Need to get a couple of items taken away. My only goal is not to have to spend much of my personal time, calories or hassle in getting rid of them. Selling is not a priority.
So what are my options? Donation, if someone will send over a couple of people to pick it up? If I buy something new, will the delivery guys haul away old stuff (like they do with appliances)? Can I pay someone to haul them away? Craigslist, etc. is a possibility, but my recent impressions of such places is that there can be a certain weirdo factor involved, particularly with free stuff.
Also, this is the City of Minneapolis proper, so dealing with the intricacies of city garbage collection ("soup nazi" garbage guys--fantastic when things work, terrors when they don't) is welcome, too.
Thanks--and answers that are not specifically good for me may be good for someone else. Keeping it general is okay.
