I've found that putting boxes of stuff out on the street on a fine day with a note saying 'help yourself' works a treat - most of it goes and you can collect any leftovers at the end of the day
That technique can make stuff disappear remarkably quickly, as I found with a dressing table someone dumped in the hall of our block. I dragged it outside with a note 'free to good or bad home' and it was gone within half an hour. I also do that with useful (to someone) stuff that residents dump in our bin room - it all goes toot sweet. Just be careful you don't get accused of fly tipping.
