Furniture Recycling Project

 The Furniture Recycling Project collects and recycles furniture and electrical white goods in good working condition. These items are donated to families or residents in need. They may lack the basic items that make their property a home. 

Furniture is collected from empty properties and through donations from people across the borough.

SKylight really appreciate all your donations . Your donation helps people in need make their house a home.
