Furniture Sharehouse

Furniture Sharehouse, Westchester’s Furniture Bank, collects gently-used furniture from the public and distributes it free of charge directly to Westchester families in need.

Each year they help over 460 families and rely on public donations, since 2007 have provided over 68,000 items to help fill empty homes and help individuals rebuild their lives. The business model relies on a central location drop off to reduce trucking fees. They are actively seeking collaborations with Westchester municipalities to place a furniture collection bin in their recycling yard for resident drop-off; adding to those in Larchmont, Tuckahoe, and the Village of Scarsdale. It’s a win-win as the bins reinforce municipal commitment to recycling, provide residents with a convenient place to recycle these items and they reduce bulk waste pick-ups and cost.
