GIVE YOUR FURNITURE A SECOND LIFE
If you want to get rid of a piece of furniture that's still in good condition, you can give it to a social and supportive structure. Otherwise, you can deposit it at a waste management site. The furniture collected in Eco-furniture bins are transferred to sorting centers where material is separated by recovery stream (wood, mattresses, metal, plastic, etc.) to be recycled and reused in other manufactured products.
